Can you legally name a child $hit in the US?

But, you know, obviously with an S instead of $.

    If someone can name a child Ke$ha, A$AP Rocky or XXXtentacion I see no reason why you can't likewise destroy your child's life. ;-)

    No of course not, it would be considered child abuse.

    This is STATE, not Federal law.  It would depend on where.  I do know 100% that you cannot CHANGE a name to another name which MY State believes is offensive.

    Yes they could but would the city let them is something I don't know. We have many constitutional freedoms and I think your child's name would be covered so to speak. http://www.realclear.com/living/2014/11/07/worst_b... shows a few of the questionable names such as Phelony. Other parents are waiting for their child to name themselves hopefully with some parental guidance.

  • Like most things asked around here, there is literally a wikipedia article that has the answers you'd seek:
