Baby Naming Rules From Around the World

Illegal Baby Names From Around the World

What's really in a name? In some countries it's more than you think. Selecting your little one's moniker is never easy, but doing so when there are government-imposed guidelines can make it an even more daunting task. A city in Mexico released a list of 61 banned names this week, which included Facebook and Hitler, and New Zealand made news when it released a list of banned baby names not too long ago.

While some parents use their religion as a guide, others use places they love or movies to narrow the field. But unique names aren't welcome in all corners of the world. Some are to be expected (Lucifer and Martian), others may be a bit of a surprise, so take this quiz to see which countries have banned certain names.

I guess if your not in the Top Scorers you must not have done to well BUT, it would still be nice to have the answers.

PamelaCairns87155 PamelaCairns87155 1 year

that sounds like a loaded response if you ask me. I don't know if your a grandmother or not but the 3 in my pic with me are my grandkids. At my age I have learned that always and never are not true. And that when it comes to electronics all bets are off. So I never jump to conclusions about that kind of thing ever....hum never applies here

Yup. I am on my computer now and I can see the correct answers with the reasons.

KathyDeLaughterPatterson KathyDeLaughterPatterson 1 year

PamelaCairns87155 PamelaCairns87155 1 year

I think you're absolutely correct stephanie I have an iphone, android and ipad ,tablet and a desktop and I to believe that it is based on what you take the quiz on I took it on my iPhone on an android I cannot see the answers to the quiz also but I'm not going to get angry or upset about it it's only a quiz

amberstatzer1391328892 amberstatzer1391328892 1 year

why are you calling pop sugar biased?

amberstatzer1391328892 amberstatzer1391328892 1 year

and the comment about unsubscribing to pop sugar over a quiz is rediculous

amberstatzer1391328892 amberstatzer1391328892 1 year

I think everyone should just chill out it's only a quiz I know it took up a few minutes of your time and mine as well but they just made a mistake and may have accidentally not post them it's not a big deal don't let it ruin your dayI would rather discuss the topic and the reason for the quiz to begin with

It would be nice to get the answers after I took the time to take your test! Disappointed!

StephanieFelisme StephanieFelisme 1 year

I'm on my android phone and I don't see the answers. Maybe this is why the rest can't see them either?

KathyDeLaughterPatterson KathyDeLaughterPatterson 1 year

I don't understand why you can't see them. They are right above the comments on my page on the laptop. Gives the answer you gave, the correct, and an answer commentary on the country.

KathyDeLaughterPatterson KathyDeLaughterPatterson 1 year

The answers are right on the screen! I don't see why you guys can't see them! It tells what you answered, and what the right answer is, with a commentary!

KathyDeLaughterPatterson KathyDeLaughterPatterson 1 year

tracybarcus tracybarcus 1 year

yeah, so i had already stopped reading popsugar because they were not very informative and frankly biased. this intrigued me enough to click, but now i will go ahead and unsubscribe and block, because i actually wanted the info. not a pointless quiz with no answers.
