14 Banned Baby Names That Kind of Crack Us Up

babyGetting ready for a new baby involves a long list of to-dos. Nursery furniture, car seat, clothes, diapers, and the list goes on and on. However, the most exciting part of the planning is always picking out the name. Every parent prays it's the perfect fit. After all, this is what your child will be called for the rest of his life. Some parents go traditional while others get a little more creative with their choices. But did you know that in some places, you actually don't have the right to name your child anything you want to? It's true. Check out the names that have been legally banned.

  1. Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii (banned in New Zealand)
  2. Devil (banned in Japan)
  3. Smelly Head (banned in Malaysia)
  4. Venerdi (which means "Friday", banned in Italy)
  5. Bridge (banned in Norway) 
  6. Saddam Hussein (banned in Brazil)
  7. @ (banned in China)
  8. Tom (banned in Portugal)
  9. 007 (banned in Malaysia)
  10. Miatt (banned in Germany)
  11. Anus (banned in Denmark)
  12. Stallion (banned in New Zealand)
  13. Ovnis (banned in Portugal)
  14. Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmmprxvclmnckssqlbb11116 (banned in Sweden)

If there are parents who are actually willing to name their child Anus, then I guess it is a good thing these laws exist. How in the world do you even pronounce Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmmprxvclmnckssqlbb11116 anyways? And can you imagine if you had to go through life as Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii? These sound like taunts a bully makes on a playground, not some moniker a loving mom and dad give you. That's just mean.

What other wacky names should be on this list?
