It all started after these parents in France expressed their desire to name their baby Nutella. Sadly for them, the name is a registered trademark, and can’t be used by others than the company.
When a newborn baby in Valenciennes, France, was named after the famous hazelnut chocolate spread, a panel of judges was informed. The baby’s birth certificate issued by the French authorities was canceled in court because they concluded that the parent’s decision to name their baby Nutella is not in the interest of child. In the absence of both parents, the judges decided that baby can be named Ella.
