Parents in the Mexican state of Sonora have been asked to stop naming their children "Facebook," "Rambo," “Circumcision” or 58 other now banned names.
One would be hard pressed to make a story like this up. Imagine one of the children in the above picture with the name “Circuncision" or "Circumcision."
Perhaps the Mexican state should put its resources to better use by looking into why these parents are naming their children after a surgical procedure involving the removal of a boy’s foreskin or the largest social network in the world.
"The law is very clear because it prohibits giving children names that are derogatory or that don't have any meaning and that can lead to bullying," Sonora State Civil Registry Director Cristina Ramirez said.
Ramirez revealed that in the town of Navojoa, a boy was named "Juan Calzon," or "Juan Panties," and a girl was named "Lady Di."
Clearly something is amiss.
