5. @.

No, that was not a typo. Someone in China tried to name their child @, which apparently resembles the Chinese symbol for “love him.” @, however is not actually a Chinese symbol, so it got the kobosh.

6. Sarah

What’s wrong with Sarah you ask? Well, it’s that pesky “H” at the end, according to the Moroccan government. “Sarah” is just not Moroccan enough, but Sara, minus the H, is totally cool. Makes sense.

7. Hitler

Hopefully, it’s clear why this is banned in the U.S. for obvious reasons, although sadly, recent events probably prove it’s not that obvious to everyone.

8. Messiah

A Tennessee family was ordered by a judge to change their son’s name from “Messiah” to “Martin.” The mother was shocked and appealed the decision because she felt the judge was imposing religious beliefs on her.

9. Tulula Does The Hula From Hawaii

It is not clear if the Hawaiian family who wanted to name their baby that phrase were avid hula hoopers or not, but either way, a judge said no-go to the Hula-Hooping Tuluah from Hawaii.

10. Anus

If you’re having a baby in Denmark, you’re going to have to let the ever-popular “Anus” go for your top baby name. It remains firmly on their banned baby name list. I know you’re disappointed.
