These Baby Names Are Banned in the State of Iowa
There sure are a lot of unique baby names these days. Every generation has a new round of distinctive names that get people's heads turning. But eventually, they become part of the norm and we get used to it.
There are, however, a few baby names that are banned in Iowa. And once you see the list, you probably won't be surprised.
Jesus Christ: This one seems pretty obvious and doesn't need much of an explanation.
Santa Claus: Can you imagine having a child and naming it Santa Claus? They'd expect Christmas every. single. day. Thankfully, it's not an option.
Adolph Hitler: Yep, this guy. Do we even need to explain why his name is banned? He's basically the evilest person ever to exist.
@: That's right, you can't name your kid the @ symbol. Why you would want to is a story for another day.
Not only are these names banned in the Hawkeye State, but they're also banned everywhere in the United States.
