News: French Court Won't Let Parents Name Child "Nutella"

I named my penis Nutella. The courts didn't care.
Parents Can’t Name Their Child ‘Nutella,’ French Court Says

A recently-born baby named Nutella was renamed by a court in the French city of Valenciennes after a judge ruled that the parents’ decision to the name the child after a food was against the child’s interest, according to a new report in the newspaper La Voix Du Nord.

“The name ‘Nutella’ given to the child is the trade name of a spread,” the court’s decision read, according to a translation. “And it is contrary to the child’s interest to be wearing a name like that can only lead to teasing or disparaging thoughts.”

The judge renamed the child Ella after the parents failed to show up at a court appointed day in November. The baby was born in September.

  1. Ahahaha! You had me at the headline. :D That child will probably thank the judge when she's old enough to understand what happened, but it also seems like a rather unusual decision from the court. I don't think the parents thought this through.
