Nowadays we hear extremely ‘creative’ names. From the locations of India or London, all the way to foods like Apple, or Elon-esque names like ‘X AE A-XII’. There are some names however, that do go too far. The ones on this list are actually banned in their country of origin. Check them out…
Cyanide – United Kingdom
A British parent was told not to name their children Cyanide out of concern that it will hurt the child in the future because Cyanide is a lethal poison. The mother, who tried to give her daughter the name “Cyanide” and her twin brother the moniker “Preacher,” allegedly had a turbulent past filled with mental illness, drug and alcohol addiction, and encounters with violent men.
Ikea – Sweden
In order to prevent non-noble families from naming their children noble names, Sweden’s Naming Law was passed in 1982. The nation also stipulates that initial names must not be insensitive or upsetting and may only be altered once.
The law has banned names like Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb111163 (yep, you read that correctly), Metallica, Superman, Veranda, Ikea, and Elvis, while accepting Google as a middle name and Lego.
