I can't imagine they took them away just because of the names. My guess is that there was something else going on in the home on top of the asshattery of naming one's child Adolf Hitler.

i'm expecting if you're going to call your kid adolf hitler, you're probably a candidate for not being fit to be a parent.

It's a legitimate case for sure on the names alone - intentionally subjecting your children to a life of emotional anguish and bullying is abuse. The case is identical in this regard to the Talula Does The Hula case. I hope they can find a way to get their names changed.


I despise weird and stupid names. I really cannot bloody stand people fucking up spelling of ordinary names just to make them exotic or something. They just look like dicks when they do it and it reflects on the child and the parent. I wonder if the parents of a kid I knew called Izack knew people thought the name was idiotic and that she, the mother, was an arse. Good work, mother of the freaking year. You've signed your son to a life of frustration at having to spell it EVERY SINGLE TIME he says it to someone. Good fucking on you, mum and dad. For every kid who suffers a shitty name, I feel for you. You're the offspring of idiots. Sorry.

Haha, yeah that annoys me too. Sometimes the spelling is so off it takes me a second to figure out what the name is. Phil's ex was "Britni". Meh.

Also, probably not nearly as common anymore, but Americanizing names. I'm glad my parents did not Americanize my name or I'd be another one of a gazillion "Liz"s. My kids will have Dutch family names and I'm not dumbing down the spelling for the sake of others.

I once asked someone what was wrong with his parents, when I saw that his name was
George St. George. He told me they had never really given him a strait answer.

I've also heard about a guy who's name was Harry Balls, no I'm serious! Stop laughing!

Have you seen what his sisters are named like?
"JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 23 months, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, 9 months"
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,480248,00.html

I think that added up to the Adolf thing, should be enough reason to take someone's kids away. And RENAME them.
People like this shouldn't be allowed to have kids.

I'm surprised it's even legal in America to give your kid such a name. Where I live there are certain names you cannot give to your kid, and that'll be one of them!

I bet at least some of your neighbours will refer to you (not within your earshot, of course) as "that family with the weird ass names".

LOL, not if they're all Dutch!! It typically isn't a problem around here with people 40 and older. My generation is different though and is far more Americanized. When I give my name for waiting at a restaurant it's Liz. Also I don't give people death looks if they can't say my name at first, only for asking if it's "really" my "real" name, lol. Hard "s", soft "s" or Liesje is fine but if people try to call me Leis (like, 'you're telling lies') or Lisa I honestly don't even hear it. It's like screaming Bob in a crowd when you're looking for a Ben.

heres another, didn't know if this was already posted.

-John Koffman (Murfreesboro, TN) - His friends call him Jack…
-Sharonda Cox (Saint Louis, MO) - It might be pronounced ShaRONda but it sure looks like “sharin’ da” to me…
-Justin Butts (Springfield, MO) - I’ll take gay jokes and monthly therapy bills for a lifetime please, Alex.
-Harry Ball (Castle Rock, CO) - Insert pretty much any joke here. Seriously, Harry’s lucky he made it out of middle school.
-Amanda Buttram (Conway, MO) - I know, I know, I didn’t believe it myself at first. But trust me, it gets worse (or funnier depending how sadistic you are).
-M. Y. Butt (Saint Louis, MO) - When did St. Louis decide it hated babies?
-Richard Large (Eufaula, AL) - Good ole’ Dick might have hated filling out forms last name first but I’m guessing Richard Little (Saint Louis, MO) would probably be willing to trade.
-Ben Dover (Nineveh, IN) - I wish I were kidding. Look it up. Shouldn’t there be some sort of mercy rule for this type of thing?
-Gayford Buttram (Niangua, MO) - And the Buttram family makes their second appearance on the list. Here’s a tip, if your last name includes the word Butt in it (in which case, again, I’m sorry) please for the love of everything holy don’t put the word “gay” anywhere near your poor kid’s name. You know… not that there’s anything wrong with that.
-And last but certainly not least we have Michael Huntsucker (Kansas City, MO) - $1,000 and my first born child says he doesn’t go by Mike.

"(what the hell is wrong with Missouri?)"
