Is it acceptable to name your baby "Jihad" in France, which has suffered Europe's worst Islamist terror attacks in recent years?
France's chief prosecutor now has to wrestle with that question after a couple's chosen name for their son was referred by authorities in Toulouse.
Interesting little story from France here about a decision a judge has got to make about whether he'll allow parents to name their kid Jihad.
It does beggar belief why parents would want to give their kid this name, especially in this age of Islamic terrorism, but these parents aren't the only ones to give their kids awful names.
Do you remember the names that David Beckham gave his kids? The name he gave his daughter was especially awful, he named her Harper Seven. Poor kid. A ridiculous name.
I am sure that for wealthy families like Beckham's, his kids go to private schools filled with lots of kids with exotic names, so his daughter probably won't be mocked for her name, but what about everyone else?
Should there be a law, or some kind of restriction preventing silly names for children? How would what is silly be defined?
If a parent wants to name their kid Toblerone or Cadbury's Creme Egg, isn't that their business? What if they choose Adolf Hitler or Osama bin Laden as names?
