    Because when he was named Saddam Hussein was likely little known to completely obscure, which of course you don't even think about because you don't' actually give two ****s beyond trying to be a very very crappy partisan hitman

    I did miss the first line. I am not sure why, actually. Thanks, I didn't think you had stated your reason for posting the story.

    I wondered if you were against the store for refusing service, or against the parents, or worse, for the parents, etc.

    Sorry about the confusion.

    A few thoughts. Because of the infamy of the name, this kid will probably be ridiculed. This is not about whether or not the parents have the right to name their kid Adolph Hitler or not. They can name their kid anything they want. However, naming your kid something bizarre or something that is reminiscent of something heinous will set the kid up to be made fun of. Doesn't matter whether it is right or wrong. It's just the facts of what will occur.

    One other thing. I live pretty close to where this family comes from and I know the area very well. This area is well known for it's anti-semitism and the number of neo-Nazi groups that operate out of there. There is no doubt as to why this father named his kids what he did, regardless of what he claims.

    Above all, look at the adulation heaped upon Ernesto Guevara, a murderous failure, who would blink at named a kid "Che?"

    I think the course of wisdom is to accept that these kids are probably going to be warped, as so many are and ignore the family entirely.
    Actually 'Che' is pretty common in Argentina. But not because it's a name. It's what they call each other. Cubans just didn't figure that out.

    Che Guerrara is also a hero to almost all of latin America. They love him because he stood up to the gringos.

    so what if he just gave the kid a middle name of hitler?


    it IS the same thing.

    "...will probably be ridiculed"??? Maybe closer to the truth is he will get the **** ripped out of him and or be killed at a young age. "They can name their kid anything they want". Oh really? Then try dressing the little angel in a KKK uniform and send his ass in to a ghetto. Dress him up covered with swastikas and parade his soon to be shot ass in a Jewish neighborhood. You people out there that slobber over the parents "right" to name their kids these names are patheic dreamers. You should concentrate on what is instead of how wonderful this world would be if we all just got along. I'll bet you all lock you doors and windows every night, don't you? Wake up dummies.

    OMFG!!!! words fail to express my shock from reading this OP. The intent of the parents is blatantly clear here. It is my hope that the children do not suffer for their parents folly. The girl has a name that most won't catch, but the boy.......


    Sometimes the sheer stupidity and/or arrogance of people is mind boggling.

    It's obvious that these people value their points of view more than their own children.

    That kind of thing is unique to the specific name. In common usage, Hitler has the same connotation as Adolf Hitler. That isn't true of Hussein. Saddam Hussein is much more easily identified by the name Saddam than the name Hussein.

    Actually, its not.

    First, for it to be the SAME thing you'd need to have someone FOURTY years from now naming their kid "Hussein" for it to be "the same". Unless I'm mistaken, Saddam Hussein wasn't exactly a giganticly well known name of someone evil 40+ years ago. So no, its not the same in that account.

    Second, as the above poster mentioned, Sadam seemed much more recognized by his first name then his last, the opposite of Hitler.

    Third, while to my knowledge "Hitler" isn't exactly a common name..."Adolf" isn't that uncommon, nor is "Hussein" in the muslim world. To say that someone having the middle name of Hussein, a common name in the muslim world, is not anywhere close to the same as someone naming thier kids middle name "Adolf Hitler" OR "Saddam Hussein".

    If your kid has a middle name of Joseph, should he be ostracized and his patriostism for not changing it questioned becuase its the first name of Stalin? No. But if his middle name was "Joseph Stalin" then you'd probably have a bit more to think about.

    Similar may be a better word to use, and even then that'd be loose at best.
