Banned Baby Name Issue Arises As Newborn Is Allegedly Named Hashtag
Do you know all of the banned baby names? They're pretty funny, but perhaps the funniest (and saddest) of them all is Hashtag Jameson; a concoction of a social media tagging tool and an Irish Whiskey sipped prolifically by Officer McNulty.
"Hashtag Jameson was born at 10 oclock last nite," reads the caption of a photo that appears to have been posted on Facebook. "She weys 8pounds and I luv her so much." The picture has gone viral on twitter, with many users not knowing whether to laugh or cry at this ridiculous baby name. Now in fairness to the mother, it is pertinent to note that this could simply be a twitter faux-pas, and instead of putting a #, she simply spelled the word. And to be honest, both of the possible outcomes are funny, but one of them is pretty worrying. It got us thinking, though, about other baby names that have been so ridiculous, they've had to go through the law to be banned from use. Here are some of our favourites...
1) Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii (New Zealand)
We can see why this one would be troublesome come the first day of school for the unfortunate scamp.
2) Venerdi AKA 'Friday' (Italy)
Not too sure why this one has been outlawed. Venerdi; it has a nice ring to it.
3) Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116 (Sweden)
4) Gesher AKA 'Bridge' (Norway)
Possibly jealous of Sweden/Denmark's excellent crime drama The Bridge?
5) Chow Tow AKA 'Smelly Head' (Malaysia)
6) @ (China)
Just wait until we see the first 'Hashtag @'.
7) Miatt (Germany)
Apparently this is illegal because it's genderless.
8) Anus (Denmark)
9) Ovnis (Portugal)
Portugal has over 2000 names on its banned list.
10) Akuma AKA Devil (Japan)
Alright, you've had your fun.
