    "A recently-born baby named Nutella was renamed by a court in the French city of Valenciennes after a judge ruled that the parents’ decision to the name the child after a food was against the child’s interest"

    So, what's the strangest name you've heard for a child?

    I think you only have to pick up a women's weekly chat magazine to see an array of bizarre names. Coco, Blanket, Satchel, Princess, Apple, Scout, Birdie etc. I feel really sorry for those celeb babies. Good to hear common sense prevailed in your example.

    I don't think that the courts allowed it, though.

    I'm so glad for the French legal system. 'Hashtag' comes to mind but other then that I can't think of anything. Other then maybe the Renault Clio which was almost re-named after two families in the UK complained that their children (called Clio Renault) should suffer abuse due to it, which I entirely understand. Unfortunately they lost the case.

    How is that pronounced?

    I have a vague idea that a couple wanted to name their child 4real and the courts (Australia?) wouldn't allow it.

    I once read a magazine (women's weekly type, something like Best/Bella/Women's Own/Love It) that had a regular column devoted to unusual baby names. People were always writing in with "well, I'm called Bob, and my partner is called Sally, so we called our child Bobbly!"

    @, pronounced 'at'. However, they insisted that the written version was the '@' sign, not just 'at'.

    I quite like this actually. More children should be named after compass points, it's quite lovely.
