I'm sure there have been discussions on stupid child names before, but his one fries my brain.

Adolf Hitler Campbell
THE father of a toddler called Adolf Hitler Campbell says it is unfair that a store denied him a birthday cake with his child's name on it.
New Jersey man Heath Campbell, 35, has decorated his home with swastikas and says he is related to a member of the SS.
But he says it is the store that wouldn't write "Happy Birthday Adolf Hitler" on a cake that should be showing more consideration for other people's feelings.
"They need to accept a name. A name's a name. The kid isn't going to grow up and do what (Hitler) did," he told the Associated Press.
But the ShopRite store that refused the cake request says it did the right thing.
"We believe the request ... to inscribe a birthday wish to Adolf Hitler is inappropriate," spokeswoman Karen Meleta told the Express-Times newspaper.
The store has also refused to make a cake bearing the name of Mr Campbell's daughter, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, who turns two in February.
Mr Campbell and his wife Deborah also have a daughter Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, named for SS head Heinrich Himmler, who turns one in April.
He said he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and because "no one else in the world would have that name".
"They're just names, you know," he told the Express-Times.
"Yeah, they (Nazis) were bad people back then. But my kids are little. They're not going to grow up like that."
"Other kids get their cake. I get a hard time," he said. "It's not fair to my children.'
Mr Campbell said he didn't expect the names to cause problems when the children start school.
Moronic, arrogant, attention-seeking wackjobs. It's one thing to copy Hollywood and call your kids BathtubStrudelNoggin ... but this is a real step into child-abuse territory.
