No, not ‘Illegal’ but worse. Rebecca Shinners on the twins from Wales:
The mother, who is from Powys, Wales, attempted to name her offspring “Cyanide” and “Preacher.” She believed “Cyanide” was a pretty name for a little girl with positive implications since it’s the poison that killed both Hitler and his follower Joseph Goebbels, according to Metro. She also argued that she had the right to name her own children. However, Justice Eleanor King ruled that the name could cause emotional harm to the child in the future.
It’s worse than you think.
The twins, now 8 months old, were reportedly conceived of rape. They were placed in foster care, along with their three half-siblings, due to the mother’s history of mental illness and drug and alcohol abuse.
