One of the toughest decisions for parents with a newborn is deciding on the youngster’s name. Both mother and father may have significantly contrasting ideas, and have the burden of picking the moniker their children will be called for the rest of their lives.
When I was born, my parents had agreed on my name months in advance, but couldn’t decide on my brother’s. They finally resolved the issue by combining their top choices for his first and middle name, but the decision didn’t come easy.
But, as it turns out, even if a couple come to a mutual agreement on their child’s name, it doesn’t mean everyone will approve, and that includes legally.
When a French couple welcomed their newborn daughter into the world this past November, they picked an unusual name that perfectly fit their third child.
Unfortunately, not everyone seemed to agree. In February, the court stepped in and ordered the pair to change their daughter’s “unique” name.
But what is the moniker that’s causing such a high level of controversy?
