From BBC news German officials have refused to allow a Turkish couple living in KÃ¶ln to name their baby boy Osama Bin Laden. Should couples be allowed to name their children without intervention from the government or is Germany right to prevent this? Where do you draw the line ? IMO, Germany is right to refuse this but only for the sake of the child who would have to grow up with the ridicule (or praise depending upon where they live.) directed at them.
