FRENCH COURTS VETO BABY NAME AS IT WASN’T FEMININE ENOUGH FOR DAUGHTER
Parents shocked when French Courts veto their chosen baby name for not being ‘feminine enough’ for their daughter.
Some baby names do sometimes make us scratch our head and wonder how it would work shouting it at the park ‘Apple, where are you? Apple, get back here’, especially if they’re off hiding, and it sounds like you’re desperately trying to recall a piece of fruit.
However much we may find the baby names a little out there, there’s no mistaking that parents in the United States can call their babies whatever names they see fit. However, two parents in France had a little bit of a surprise, when they tried to name their baby girl, Liam.

According to The Local, French courts decided that the name Liam wasn’t fitting enough for a girl, and vetoed their choice, citing the child’s’ best interest. Prosecutors said that naming the girl with a traditional boys name would cause them gender confusion in the future “therefore contrary to the interest of the child and could harm her in her social relations.”
That’s not how this works, that’s not how any of this works.
The courts mentioned a number of famous Liam’s, notably Liam Neeson, and Oasis lead singer, Liam Gallagher as the base of their claim, that Liam belongs to boys. The prosecutor has asked the judge to ban the parents from using the first name and force them to give “the child another name chosen by the parents and, failing that, by the judge.”
Because that’s what every parent wants. Their child to be named by a complete and utter stranger in the courtroom.

The baby, who was born last November, and is already gearing up for their first birthday in a few months, was brought to the register last march by the mother, and advised then to pick a more suitable and girl like name by the French Courts. Alone and feeling pressured, she refused without speaking to her partner.
The two parents, who has of today remained anonymous are awaiting their court date, and postponed their baptism until they can formally name their child, who is now ten months old. There has been no word on how they are referring to the child, until the courts decide what they are allowed to name their own child.
