More on the children's name front

In my January 10th post on baby names (see below), I dealt with the weird names famous couples sometimes give their children. I did leave out a few.

New Jersey recently took temporary custody of little Adolph Hitler (age 3) and his sisters, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation (not yet 2) and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie (9 months) after a public controversy arose when a bakery refused to inscribe little Adolph's name on a birthday cake. NJ was suspicious of child abuse or neglect, presumably because of the names.

The parents, much maligned by the public, said, "A name's a name. The kid isn't going to grow up and do what Hitler did." Hmm. Probably not.

Playmates Mussolini Jones and Hirohito Smith said they miss their little friends. (Seriously, I made that last sentence up.)

  1. I have often held forth, after a beer or six, as to the disappearance of the name Hitler over the past sixty odd years. One of those philosophical questions for the ages.
