These baby names are banned in Victoria

According to the state of Victoria’s Births, Deaths and Marriages official website, there are some names that are classed as prohibited.

The website says that because of the important role names play in people’s lives, some are prohibited if they cannot reasonably be used by the community and/or on legal identity documents.

“Before making a decision, BDM will take into account a number of relevant factors including cultural and family relevance and how the name would be perceived in the community,” the website states.
