@MariContrary:  Oh, like a Justice of the Peace or something?  I didn’t get it.  Well that seems like it’s in line with others on the list then.

@Doodle411:  There was a story about that name in Freakonomics.  Weird that your mom would know someone with that name too – I wonder if it comes from a different culture?  

I know sometimes people from Asian cultures have names that don’t work well in English.  I actually KNOW someone who’s legal name is Dongwood.  He DOES NOT use that name in Canada.  I mean honestly though, since they were translating from non-roman characters, couldn’t they have chosen a different spelling?  Poor guy.

@nearlymarriedlass:  Oh, we’ve got just as bad ones here.  I don’t understand why these people would want their child to be miserable growing up.  I’m sure there are plenty of children here who would have appreciated a banned list.  I think we did stop a set of so called parents from naming their child Adolf Hitler though.

In Germany you have to get unusal names approved and sometimes they will deny you. German law mandates a baby name must reflect the sex of the child, and not endanger the well being of the child.  A friend of mine was the first ever Santana in Germany, her mum actually filed a legal suit to get the name approved. Names such as Stompie, Woodstock and Grammophon were turned down in the past. Same goes for Satan, Bierstübl, Puhbert, Pillula, Sputnik, Störenfried, Oma, Verleihnix, Berlin, Bodhi, Borussia, Cezanne, Frieden-Mit-Gott-Allein-Durch-Jesus-Christus, Heydrich, Holgerson, Lindbergh, Lord, McDonald, Moewe, Mechipchamueh, Navajo, Pfefferminze, Puschkin, Rosa (for a boy), Rosenherz, Schröder, Schmitz, Simona (for a boy), Stone, Sonne, Tom Tom and Venus (for a boy).

Back slashes between names? Good grief! Who would want to do that in the first place?

Wow, most of those are deplorable and should be banned.

I’m a bit puzzled by “Honour,” though. I’ve definitely seen “Honor” used as a (somewhat uncommon, but lovely) girl’s name among people of Irish ancestry, and there are lots of people of Irish ancestry in Australia. Yes, it’s an abstract quality, but it’s really no different from naming a girl “Faith,” “Hope,” “Charity,” “Prudence,” “Patience,” etc., and those names are pretty widely accepted. Why should “Honour/Honor” be banned?
