Sonora, Mexico bans parents from naming kids 'Facebook', 'Rambo' - Tucson News Now

Sonora, Mexico bans parents from naming kids 'Facebook', 'Rambo', 59 others

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

 

TODAY'S MOST...Strange rule: It is now illegal for parents in Sonora, Mexico to name their kids 61 different names. The state decided names like "Facebook", "Rambo," "Circumcision", and "Lady Di" are illegal. 

How did Sonora choose these names to ban? The Civil Registry Office went through the list of all babies born last year, and found each of the banned names used at least once. One child was even named what translates to "Juan Panties."

The Registry Office Director says,"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."

The list of banned names could grow because the state hasn't finished looking at the list of all of the babies born last year.
