London: A French court has banned parents from naming their baby girl "Nutella" after the hazelnut spread , arguing that it would make her the target of mockery.
The judge aid in his ruling that the name Nutella was the trade name of a spread that is commonplace in Gallic homes and ordered that the child be called Ella instead, the BBC reported.
French parents are usually free to choose the names of their children, but local prosecutors are empowered to report what they deem to be unsuitable names to a family court.
The parents in the case did not attend the court hearing, so the judge decided in their absence that Ella was a more appropriate name.
