Banned Baby Names from Around the World

Is your named banned in another country?

November 9, 2017

Choosing a name for a baby can be quite the task. For the most part, people are free to name their babies as they please. And that's why every single year we have more insane names to add to the Worst Baby Names Ever list

Some of the ones I remember off the top of my head were Orgasm, Randy Dick, and Hashtag Jameson. You can't make this stuff up even if you tried. 

In certain parts of the World, there are names that are on a banned list. These lists are created to protect national heritage. 

Viking (Portugal)

Jimmy (Portugal)

Rihanna (Portugal)

Sayonara (Portugal)

Alice (Saudi Arabia)

Maya (Saudi Arabia)

Abdul Nasser (Saudi Arabia)

Taylor (Germany/Denmark)

Ashley (Germany/Denmark)

Morgan (Germany/Denmark)

Jordan (Germany/Denmark)

Prince William (France)

Osama bin Laden (Germany)

Adolf Hitler (Germany)

Anus (Denmark)

Elvis (Sweden)

Metallica (Sweden)

Rambo (Mexico)

Batman (Mexico)

And that's just the beginning of the banned lists. You can see towards the end why some of these names are banned because they are just ridiculous.
