"Justice" Is a Banned Baby Name?!
Fri, 05-03-2013 - 7:56am

According to Time.com, New Zealand has released a list of 77 unacceptable baby names that have been rejected by the government. "Justice" has been rejected a whopping 62 times. "Duke" is also a surprising no-no (good thing Bill and Giuliana Rancic don't live there; that's their son's middle name). Other royal names like "Prince," "King," "Princess," and "Majesty" are the baby name blacklist too. One not-so-shocking addition: Lucifer. Really, who would name their baby that anyway?

Apparently, laws like these are designed to protect kids from embarrassment. But embarrassment is subjective. So is beauty. What tops one mama's dream-baby-name list will top another's I-wouldn't-saddle-my-kid-with-that-if-you-paid-me list. With that said, here are the names we'd ban if we could:

What do you think about baby names being banned? What names would you add to the *list* if you could?

I really don't think any name should be banned.  I'm not a fan of most celebrity baby names, but who am I to say what someone else names their child? To each their own really.  I'm sure others aren't so fond of the names I gave my children, and that's fine- we like them and that's what matters!
