I don't know; however, I feel anyone who names their child after such a despicable person is courting all kinds of problems for the kid in years to come. The longer I live the more I wonder about the so-called human race and their logic, not to mention intelligence and sensitivity. These are kind of people you cross the street when you see them approaching, at least in MHO.

That is going to seriously screw up those kids' futures. Hellooooo! They have to go to school, job interviews, and everything else a normal person does with those names.

And I really don't understand this:
"Heath Campbell said he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and because "no one else in the world would have that name." He sounded surprised by all the controversy the dispute had generated."

He named his son after the most evil man in history and he's surprised people don't like it? The cake thing is only the start. He's gotta go to school some day. I'd hate to be that teacher.

These children’s parents knew that the children's names would be controversial. They apparently are seeking the attention that they are receiving.

Interesting how he's all "We're not racist! We just like the name!" and then goes and gives the next child the middle name of "Aryan Nation." Not racist. Right.

Even the daughter is named after Nazi politician who was the leader of the SS as I understand it. Yikes.

That's why this is the second trip to the same store. Obviously they know of another store that will make the cakes so why go back to the one that won't?

I think they'd better be watching their Ps and Qs. I can see DCFS or the equivalent using their name choices as proof that they are not parents who have the kid's welfare in mind.

I pity these children, and feel the parents should lose custody.

Can you imagine the bullying they will have to endure?
