Griezmann Mbappe baby name ruled out because of 'likely harm to child'

A French couple who attempted to name their new-born child Griezmann Mbappe as a tribute to two of France's World Cup winners have been thwarted by a judge.

In November, La Montagne reported that the couple, from Brive-la-Gaillarde, wanted to name their child in honour of Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann and Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe.

But the Brive registrar said that was "against the child's best interests or infringing on the rights of third parties to protect their family name" -- and that verdict has been upheld by a judge.

France Bleu Limousin reported that a family affair judge ruled against the choice of name last week because of the "likely harm to the child."

The parents' second choice name, Dany Noe, will be used instead -- but the child's birth certificate will acknowledge that the original chosen name had been Griezmann Mbappe.
