If you ever thought about naming your child Harry Potter, Facebook or Hitler, you'd be out of luck if you lived in one Mexican state.

Bullying is behind the name ban, Civil Registry director Cristina Ramirez told the AP. "The law is very clear because it prohibits giving children names that are derogatory or that don't have any meaning and that can lead to bullying," she said.
