Venzuela to ban stupid names reports that Venezuela is considering approving a bill "... barring parents from giving their children 'names that expose them to ridicule, are extravagant or difficult to pronounce,' or that raise doubts about whether a child is a girl or a boy. ... If approved by the National Assembly, the bill could let authorities turn down names like some of the more unusual monikers currently on the voter rolls: Edigaith, Mileidy, Leomar and Superman."

Thanks and hit tip to Robert Remez and Aphrodite Finkelstein for bringing this to our attention.

You wouldn't believe the s*** I got as a child for being named "Simon".
