Speaking of ethnic naming practices, you might want to take a few minutes to read this uplifting tale. Or not. In which case, here’s the bestest part:

A supermarket is defending itself for refusing to a write out 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell’s name on his birthday cake…

Heath Campbell said he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and because “no one else in the world would have that name.”

The Campbells’ two other children are named JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, who turns 2 in a few months, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, who will be 1 in April.

Campbell said he was raised not to avoid people of other races but not to mix with them socially or romantically. But he said he would try to raise his children differently.

“Say he grows up and hangs out with black people. That’s fine, I don’t really care,” he said. “That’s his choice.”

He said about 12 people attended the birthday party Sunday, including several children of mixed race.

Do you think Honszlynn Hinler is named for Himmler? I probably shouldn’t have even considered that. Because somehow it’s that detail of the story that makes the whole thing sad for me. Rats, killed the funny by over-thinking it.
