If it's legal to name your baby "North," it should be OK to name your baby "Burger King" or "Facebook," right? Not if you live in Sonora, Mexico.

The state released a list of 61 banned baby names in a new law that went into effect this month. "The law is very clear because it prohibits giving children names that are derogatory or that don't have any meaning and that can lead to bullying," Sonora state civil registry director Cristina Ramirez says.

 

Some names included on the list are:

Hitler
Panties
Email
Circumcision
Batman
Virgen (Virgin)
Robocop
Terminator

Unfortunately, here in the U.S., all of those names are still legal.
