CSV Posted January 27, 2015 Share Posted January 27, 2015 http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-30993608 A French court has stopped parents from naming their baby girl Nutella after the hazelnut spread, ruling that it would make her the target of derision.The judge ordered that the child be called Ella instead.He said in his ruling that the name Nutella was the trade name of a spread that is commonplace in Gallic homes."And it is contrary to the child's interest to have a name that can only lead to teasing or disparaging thoughts," he pronounced.French parents are usually free to choose the names of their children, but local prosecutors are empowered to report what they deem to be unsuitable names to a family court.The parents in the case on Monday did not attend the court hearing, so the judge decided in their absence that Ella was a more appropriate name.
