Court bans family from naming child Nutella

A family have been ordered to change the name of their daughter, Nutella, after a French court ruled it would be “against the child’s interests” to name her after the chocolate spread.

The baby’s parents from Valenciennes in Northern France were ordered by a court to change her moniker after a registrar alerted the council to their unusual choice of name following her birth on September 24 last year.

According to La Voix Du Nord, the town’s court ordered the parents to pick a new name as they feared it would be “against the child’s interests” to be named after the popular chocolate spread.

It isn’t the first time a French court has been forced to intervene with parents naming their children.

They also ordered the Raisimes to change the name of their baby girl Fraise – meaning strawberry in English – for fear it would “be the cause of mockery” that “could have a negative impact on the child”.
