    Link: Nazi-naming Parents Can`t Get Kids - Apparently you can`t name your kids whatever you want to name them. Right or wrong?

    That was the little boy with long pretty hair?
    I don`t know if there was abuse or not, but naming their kids that shows poor judgment, those kids will be hated when they get older all because of their parents stupidity. And they don`t even acknowledge that it could of been a mistake that they named their kids those hateful names.

    the Swastika is not art, idiot.

    I don`t care if their kids fall off a cliff... Why would I give a rat`s ass what they name them?

    We`ve become a nation of people telling others how they should behave, what they should think, and how to be "politically correct". Seems like we are on a pretty straight path to National Socialism already if you ask me. I`m not sure why the whole Nazi thing is so upsetting to a country that`s well on its way to embracing that structure anyway.

    Thus begins the flames!

    I think it is stupid that we do let our government control us this much. I am not sure what bill they passed to say if you name your child this, we will take it away, but it is well stupid. As for Nazi-naming parents, whatever... it is their child, and if it isn`t causing the child bodily, or emotional harm, whatever...

    The Swastika is art. It has been used many times before the Germans picked it up for their HATE CAMPAIGN. Should we shun anything the Germans used at that time. Or any country used that we do not agree with. How can something that is used by SO MANY in the past before Hitler came around all of a sudden it gets a bad name because of one man and his crazy charades. Here is some history on the Swastika for the ignorant people out there. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika

    You guys aren`t looking at this the right way, this has nothing to do with the parents, or the right to name your kids, think for a second when these kids get older, and they go to school, the teacher there will call attendance and she`ll have to say "Adolf Hitler". As soon as those kids learn their history their classmates will alienate them because of their names. You don`t think they won`t? Think back to grade school and how shallow everyone was. What about when they go to get a job? I think the parents are trying to express themselves by being controversial, I don`t think they`re racist either. I`m not saying you can`t name your kid "Baron" or "Alberta" or "Legolas" even. Go ahead, name your kid, but remember that you`re speaking for a human being, that child will have to live with that name. Is the government right? Not really, but there is also a difference between expression and making life hard for your kids future.

    i think that people are fully entitled to name their kids whatever they choose, however a name has great influence over a child`s life. my mother and uncle were born into a commune in california and made it out with pretty good names (malachi, which he later changed and willow). however, some of the other kids born at the time weren`t so lucky. one was freakis balikis and the other groovy nipples. groovy nipples died of cirrhosis of the liver at 30. that`s pretty intense.

    and i agree with django, there`s got to be something more going on here. you can`t just take away a child because of their names... there has to be something apparently wrong with the household to warrant losing parental rights.

    The part that`s bothering me is he is unknowingly forcing his children into his beliefs. Poor little adolf might have grown up to be a morman, not now.

    Same for all you religious people out there forcing religion on your children. I`m atheist and I have told my daughter she is free to make her own opinions on religion. Think about that as you force your kids to go to church on sunday. Give them a choice (after all, if religion is real your kids would make the right choice right?)

    Why don`t you just name a kid "Kick My Ass"? People are going to be pissed when they hear the little boy`s name. I`m pissed. It`s dangerous to name a kid "Adolf Hitler" and I don`t think these parents realize it. That name evokes so much hate...why would you WANT to name a kid that? Child Protective Services is so right in taking the kids away. I just hope they are able to rename them.

    It would probably be fine if he named the kid Adolf, but using Hitler as a middle name is kinda stupid. Whether it was meant to or not, it would cause that child a lot of trouble in life. And the Swastika is actually way older than the Nazis and has been used as a religious symbol for quite some time.

    In Germany, the Standesamt (civil registration office) has to approve the name given to a child.

    I don`t think there`s any such requirement in Britain. I imagine Americans in particular would be aghast at such "intrusion of the state". But without a doubt it stops abuses like with this couple.

    So take kids away from people because you think something they have done will give them a harder time growing up? Being taken from their parents won`t give them a harder child hood then being with people that love them.. How many people grew up in poor houses and got made fun of cause they can`t afford the next cool thing? Did anyone take their kids cause it was hard for them growing up? What about the kids with two moms or dads? Who cares that they have loving parents they might get made fun of at school and that would make their childhood harder. How long til they decide they can take your kids for any reason?

    Didn`t you watch it? They said they took the kids away because "there was sufficient evidence of abuse or neglect because of domestic violence in the home". They weren`t taken away for their names (although in my opinion, that does constitute abuse in its own right, and anyone with judgement that poor would be a bad parent by default).

    Hitler not only coopted the swastika and ruined that for everyone, but also ruined a whole style of mustache. Which is the greater tragedy?

    Taking the kids away just because of the name is wrong. But maybe there was something else going on here.

    However, I`m not so quick to place my faith in child protective services. They can pull a 14 year old brat away from his/her parents after he/she makes up allegations of abuse, yet leave other children to be killed in their homes despite obvious signs of abuse and multiple visits by child protective services.

    IMO, you better be darned sure there`s a VERY good reason before you separate kids from their families under any circumstance...

    The kids were taken away not just because of their names. The parents have a history of mental health issues and cognitive impairment. Many children are (rightly) removed from such homes, this one only gets attention because of the `name` issue.

    This is not a civil rights issue, this is a parenting issue. Having been a foster parent, I can tell you that such parents do not deserve to keep their kids. The damage they do to their children in often irreparable.

    I read that in Brazil it`s not unheard of to name kids after historically famous people. Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Lenin, & etc.
    Not in North America though, or Europe I`d imagine.
    Adolph is a hard enough name to justify, but "Adolph Hitler" and "Aryan Nation" ? Nooo, you`re not naming them for "art" and that swastika on your arm isn`t "chinese" ya dumb*ss. Take the kids away because the parents are IDIOTS!

    The idiots got the attention they wanted.

    The kids will change their names when they grow up.

    But if the parents are that stupid, what other lame a$$ things are they doing to/teaching those kids? Still, you can`t remove the kids just `cause we don`t approve. It`s their choice how to raise them.

    becuase it sounds so obviously contrived. Hitler is, to my knowledge, more known than Shaquaneesha. Ergo, with the associations that the combination of Adolf and Hitler carries with it, and just inserting it into the name... It`d be the equivalent of naming a kid Horrible Dictator That Ordered Genocide Johnson.

    Not to mention the Aryan Nation-kid. Adolf Hitler, Aryan Nation, and he claims the Swastika was for it`s artistic content? >.<

    If it was just about the names, I would say that the state has no legal right to take the kids away. It`s not illegal to indoctrinate your kids with stupidity. However, I don`t believe this couple when they say there`s no domestic violence. After all, they try to claim they`re not racist, too, and guy gives a total bullpoo answer when asked about the Swastika on his arm. Yeah, it`s true that it`s a symbol used in several cultures- but he obviously has a thing for the Nazis. Sh*tty parents are sh*tty.

    I mean, the state doesn`t have a right to take their kids away honestly. I know the names are just awful and stupid to give their kids that name but it really IS the right of the parents to name their child whatever they want. Now, if there really is child abuse going on or anything of that sort then yes, they can be taken away. However, if they were taken away from a loving home solely on the basis that the names were "bad" then thats a load of bull sh*t.

    kiersten, theres naming a child a dodgy name like herbert which could lead to bullying but easily be ignored and then theres naming your kids something that WILL see him ridiculed and have to spend his whole life trying to defend himself from. he will spend the rest of his life (if he for some reason cant or wont change it) being treated as an outcast based on first impression. he`d never get a job, he`d never have a girlfriend and he`d never have a proper education.

    theres bullying, then theres signing your own kids suicide note

    I don`t know...naming your kids that seems to me like the first sign of very bad parents. A parent`s job is to nurture their kids and prepare them for the real world. The first thing they do is name them something that will alienate them forever? Yeah, those kids are much better off somewhere else.

    We had a same type of case in AZ a few years back..Someone happened to name their kid Stalin because they really liked it..The kid was taken away..and the funny thing is, the family was completely fine. They went to church, they had other children with names that didnt really seem too bad, nothing normal but not horrible either. But the child was taken away because of his name. It is recockulas that things like that get people in trouble..And as for Iambored29, They wouldnt have stepped in when the names were written on the birth certificate. You fill out paperwork at the hospital, they send it to an office where its filled out by computer. So unless someone complained about the name it would go unnoticed and be without a problem. But since someone at the store decided it was a `bad` name it got attention. Which cased the government to step in. Which only happened because people were outraged. I for one think you should be able to name your kid what you want, they can change it later.

    @GRadde:
    Point is, they`re all stupid names; they`re going to be ridiculed throughout their childhood - maybe not on the same level, or for the same reasons, but ridiculed nonetheless.

    If 1 stupid name is allowed, all stupid names have to be allowed, and government services shouldn`t be in a position to dictate which names are unacceptable. I don`t agree with parents being able to name their children whatever they can dream up, but where do you draw the line?

    I`m not saying that naming your kid Jupidupichoochoo is worse than naming him/her Hitler, or vice versa. I`m saying once you get past unique, you`ve moved on to idiocracy. They`re all stupid.

    I know idiocracy isn`t a real word, but it fits.

    If it`s truly about the right to express themselves, they should have legally changed their names. Naming your children after reviled people and concepts is just plain stupid.

    These kids are supposed to grow up in Trenton? I guarantee one or more of them will get their ass beaten down. These children are in for a rough life if their names aren`t changed.

    Now the parents are defying a court gag order? These people aren`t too bright.

    I`m all for freedom of expression, but use common sense and discretion. These are children, not billboards or pickets.

    if this is purely about the names that theyve been taken away then I think its awful - as outrageously bad (and slightly offensive) as I may find their childrens names, the government has no laws preventing naming your child anything (and if it did it would have to state said names beforehand not decide after you called your child that, that they didnt like it). the only way I can see how this would work is if they had been asked to change the names already given that there children were receiving abusive treatment from others based on their name, then I could see how they may argue neglect. tbh tho, it probably was to do with violence, these days u dont get a swastika tattoo just cos u think it looks nice, it holds far too much other meaning nowadays.

    I`m forced to agree with the sentiments expressed here. Particularly that children are not outlets for self-expression - they are people.
    If a parent can`t be responsible with a simple naming convention, then how can they possibly be responsible for child-rearing?
    I also like the idea of having to obtain a license in order to have children - a system providing at least some proof that you are worthy to be a parent. Unfortunately a song not too long ago described this situation very succinctly:
    "Took a look around and found that only stupid people are breeding - the creedence cloning and feeding - and I don`t even own a TV..."
    The ignorant need not breed - we already have too many as it is.

    I agree with Norris. Just think of the social stigmas your kid would go through even just being named "Adolf". I mean, yeah, you can name your kid whatever you want, but people don`t name their kids certain things because, well, your kid has to live with that name until they can legally change it, or possibly just the rest of their lives.

    Was it Aryan Nation as a name or Adolph Hitler?

    Those kids deserve a chance to live without their names being such a determing factor in how people will view them, children and adults alike.



    Why not Heidi? Or Gilligan? Noone is named Gilligan anymore.

    Though I do find what they did incredibly stupid the swatika symbol actually wasn`t invented by adolf hitler and was a beatiful symbol that got turned into something grotesque. Simply having a swastika tattoo means nothing if you know it`s original meaning and it`s a shame it had to go and be ruined.

    Also if the kids got taken away because of their names that`s pretty screwed up.

    These people are just plain ignorant.

    Even without any PHYSICAL abuse, the names will without a doubt lead to future abuse by the rest of society.

    I`m not saying it`s right, people should be able to have whatever names they have and not have to worry about anything.

    But it`s like with one of those "Mike Hunt" jokes, only it`s not a joke, and there`s likely to be some ass-beatings instead of punch-lines.

    Unfortunantly, under the law, rights abused are still rights, including the one to name your kid. If it turns out they wern`t domesticaly abused, the goverment has reason to interfere on behalf of the kids.
    However, I think we can all agree this should have some kind of reprocution. Even better if said reprocution left the couple sterile and unable to ruin some other kid`s life.

    Where do you draw the line on this ? Could you name your kid Stalin, Saddam Hussein, Pol Pot, Genghis Khan, Caligula, or Dracula ?

    I don`t know, while I support a person`s right to choose for their children ludicrous or even downright awful names (my daughter won`t be named `Jenny` or `Ashley` or anything you`d hear daily), I feel that they went a bit far. I`m sure Adolf was someone else`s name before it was Hitler`s; the beloved Harpo Marx was born "Adolph" (who knows? maybe that`s why it was changed?). They could`ve just been trying to "bring it back"... But to name a child `Adolf Hitler` is just way too in-your-face. It has that whole "I`ve an agenda/master plan" eeriness to it...
    And free speech aside, it`s pretty clear the parents have no regard for their children, or for what they will go through later in life with names like those.

    All I know is that these clowns can breed and I need license to exract fish from the water =///

    And as for the naming, OK you`re free to name the kid whatever you want, but why would you want to name them something with such an associaction?

    Drawn at the neo nazi`s that decided to name thier kids after Hitler in a home that has a history of domestic violence...just because this mirrors your childhood CJ doesnt mean these kids need to be subjected to it. I know you`re completely anti-obama-gov`t, but common sense has to fit somewhere in your head at some point.

    Adolf Hitler Whatever-their-last-name-was is their SON, he just long hair.

    And there`s a difference between naming your kid something STUPID, and naming your kid after a man that ordered the massacre and nearly complete genocide of multiple ethnic groups.

    Adolf, I could have understood. It`s not a horrible name in itself. But when you follow through with "Hitler," "Aryan Nation," and the kicker, "Himmler," head of the SS...

    That Swastika on your arm ain`t the ancient symbol of peace, and it sure as hell ain`t art.

    And on top of that... Add in the fact that Hitler`s stupidity was, in many ways, the reason the whole thing fell apart... And you`ve just named your kid after one of the most homicidal idiots in history.

    They must be so proud of their "creativity..."

    I don`t care if their kids fall off a cliff... Why would I give a rat`s ass what they name them?
    We`ve become a nation of people telling others how they should behave, what they should think, and how to be "politically correct". Seems like we are on a pretty straight path to National Socialism already if you ask me. I`m not sure why the whole Nazi thing is so upsetting to a country that`s well on its way to embracing that structure anyway.

    Hey, stupid sh*t, read the rest of the comment.

    I`m saying that when you have a tattoo like that and three kids named "Adolf Hitler," "Aryan Nation," And "(whatever it was) Himmler," that tattoo has nothing to do with the symbol of peace.

    Clerk says "I consider that profane and refuse to print it."
    Guy says "That IS his f@cking name!"
    Argument turns into a CPS home visit.
    >>>EVIDENCE<<< shows guy and wife have >>>smacked each other more than once.<<<
    CPS suspects abuse takes kids.

    The names actually have shi# to do with why the kids are gone.

    IMHO, those parents should NEVER get their kids back. It could be considered child abuse to give them those names, because think of the teasing and harassment the kids will have to endure because of their names. True, a parent has a right to name their child whatever they want, but the naming of a child is not a time to make a political statement or do something for the shock value, which these parents clearly did.

    Subushie (and anyone else who thinks the kids` names are okay) - what would you have said if the parents decided to name the kids Retard, Loser, and Idiot? No, there ARE lines to be drawn when it comes to naming children. Adolf and Arya would have been great names, regardless of their underlying meanings. Adolf Hitler and Aryan Nation are not.

    my sons are michael myers, anubis (the Egyptian god of death)szandor (same middle name as the founder of the church of satan), and raven osiris (Egyptian god of embalming and judgment).

    do you think my kids should be taken away because I strayed from the norm.

    @Robin: No. The kids were not taken away because of their names. They were taken away because of the "father" was suspected of abusing his kids.

    being expressive is fine, but how does it affect the kids in the future? What`s going to happen to little Dolf in school? If a child psychologist can show that it would have no negative effects, then fine, go for it.

    Whether these kids in this particular case should be taken away, no one on iab can say, unless they are part of the family and know all the facts. We don`t know what else has happened in the house.

    Why do they make that argument that the Swastika existed in other cultures and has a significance outwith Nazism? They`ve named their children after famous Nazis so the reason he has a swastika on his arm isn`t because he "likes art." Similarly, he hasn`t chosen Adolf as his son`s name because it means "noble wolf." At least have the integrity to say why you have it as opposed to blatantly lying like that. If they had the decency to stand honestly behind their actions, then fine, take it up as an issue of free speech, as the true test of any free speech laws is the worst thing that is defended by that law. As it is, idiots, in multiple ways.

    I repeat...

    There`s a MASSIVE difference between naming your kids something STUPID/CREATIVE, and naming them after people that massacred millions of innocents of various ethnic groups and lost a war because of their stupidity.

    You`re kids might get teased a little, and in the case of Michael, might even be considered badass.

    Those kids are destined to get their asses beat every other day because their stupid parents decided that it would be fun to name them after infamous homicidal idiots, the very mention of which is offensive to... Well, pretty much anyone that knows history, except, you know, Neo-Nazis...

    My last name starts with S, so I`ve always said that when I have a kid, I`m gonna try to give them an A first name and an S middle name.

    That way, when they play games at arcades and get a high-score, their initials can actually be ASS.

    However, ASS does not have a historical significance of being responsible for locking Jews, Gypsies, and pretty much anyone else they didn`t like in Concentration camps and working them to death, or gassing them if they weren`t fit to work.

    ASS also didn`t lead a military campaign to take control of Europe and the rest of the world.

    ASS also didn`t LOSE this campaign because he was a dumbass.

    thats crazy you should be able to name your kids what you want everyone is always saying be yourself and everyone has the right to believe what you want to and not to be afraid what other people think. sur there may have been some domestic disputes but every family has them they looked happy idk maybe there was abuse but if it was just becaus of the names thats stupid. im not saying that i agree with the natzi way but im not saying that they are right all im saying is that even if you no nothing about hitler or what he did you would still hate him because the rest of the world does its just like if everyone around you told you to hate the color blue that blue was the worst color in the world then you would have no choice to hate it no matter what you thought .. long story short let the dratin parents name their kids the way they want and rais them the way they want there is no wrong or right way and there shouldnt be some clear cut picture of how a typical faimly should be or behave

    if you aren`t smart enough to give your kids names that won`t cause problems and make thier lives harder on them, you aren`t smart enough to have kids.

    Eh whatever, the best thing about names that are like this is you know to avoid said family. If those kids grow up and realize they`re names are maessed up and they don`t end up being neo-nazi`s themselves then they can go to court and change their names. But I do have to wonder how the middle name `Aryan Nation` was even considered a good idea. Naaa were not racist or anything, we just happen to really love Germany, preferably between 1933 and 1945...nothing to do with the Nazi`s or that doctrine of hating people, what gives you that idea?

    The `China has swastikas` argument might have worked if the Buddhist swastika wasn`t the other way around. Hitler turned it around and used it in Nazi Germany. In China and other Buddhist countries it still turns the other way.
