What's the best name you ever heard of? I knew a girl growing up whose name was L'asagne... A judge noted that Nutella "is the trade name of a spread" A recently-born baby named Nutella was renamed by a court in the French city of Valenciennes after a judge ruled that the parents’ decision to the name the child after a food was against the child’s interest, according to a new report in the newspaper La Voix Du Nord. “The name ‘Nutella’ given to the child is the trade name of a spread,” the court’s decision read, according to a translation. “And it is contrary to the child’s interest to be wearing a name like that can only lead to teasing or disparaging thoughts.” The judge renamed the child Ella after the parents failed to show up at a court appointed day in November. The baby was born in September.
