Why anyone would want to name their child Adolph Hitler is beyond me. And then to say we should stop looking at the past… I wonder what he would say if someone would call their child Osama Bin Laden.

I found the child named Adolf Hitler disturbing as well, not to mention the names picked for his sisters. Those parents are fomenting hatred.

Those parents are awful…and to dismiss it and say act like “Oh, it’s no deal deal its just a name. Stop living in the past” is ridiculous!

And I find it amusing how they continually try to disprove the are racist by saying they’ve invited biracial children over for parties, etc… one of their daughter’s middle name is ARYAN NATION! How is that not racist?!

I feel bad for the siblings, particularly the boy.The 2 girls have neutral first names but how do people react to a child named Adolph Hitler (in school,at the playground,birthday parties,the dentist’s office,when he becomes a man and has to get a job or goes to a bar)?!!!
I know its terrible but I don’t think I could interact with a person with that name without making assumptions on who they are and what goes on inside their minds.

That story was extremely disturbing. Wow. I can see why the request was denied.

Sorry to be blunt, but all three of those names are child abuse. There’s no other way to put it.
