When expecting a baby one of the most important decision to make is what to name the unborn child. Looking for something meaningful, unique or stand out is always a task. A family in France named their son ‘Jihad’ but registration officials immediately alerted the local authorities who bluntly disapproved the name which was taken to court now the couple are waiting to find out if the court will allow them to keep the name.
The French Civil Code says children can be given any name unless it is against the interest of the child, but with France currently on a high terror alert it’s likely that the name won’t be granted even though Jihad actually means struggle, effort or self-denial contrary to the general interpretation that Jihad means holy war.
Do you think government interference on this matter is a violation of human right or do you think the poor child is the victim here, given a controversial name? Please leave a comment below.
