What’s in a name?

Well up this morning @ 7:30 AM checking out all the news headlines in my Google Reader and just had to post about this one.

Adolf Hitler Campbell,  a  3-year old,  celebrating his birthday yesterday, and his parents wanted to get his name on the cake. Yes his name is Adolf Hitler the store would not inscribe, “Happy Birthday Adolf Hitler,” on the cake.

Adolf’s parents Heath and Deborah Campbell we very upset by this, and the outpouring of angry internet postings about a newspaper article written about this incident.

As I continued reading the article the only thing that kept in my mind was the child and his happiness on his birthday. He has no control over his naming until his is of legal age to change it if you wishes.

But I will go even further here the important thing is this child and his happiness and having fun on his birthday. As a parent regardless of what the world thinks that is the ultimate goal here.

I was glad to read that this is just what they did made their son happy on his birthday.
