Naming a child has to be either the best part about having a child or one of the hardest parts. But, were you aware that there are some laws in place in some states restricting what you can name your child!
Most States Follow By A Rule Of Thumb
Most states aren't too harsh when it comes to naming your child. For instance, the state of New Jersey is fairly open to names, as long as it isn't obscene, and there are no numbers or symbols.
Some get a little more specific and harsh, like the state of Rhode Island for example. In this state, the use of diacritical marks is not allowed on their birth certificates, yet on other documents, it would be allowed.
