Court Rules The Letter J Can't Be A Name

A Swiss court has stepped in and prevented a baby from getting an unusual moniker. A couple in Zurich wanted to give their new bundle of joy the name "J." As in, JUST the letter J. 

According to the couple, they were honoring their daughter's great-grandparents Johanna and Josef with the initial as one of her middle names. The court wasn't buying it. 

The ruling found that name is not in the "best interest" of the child because the pronunciation would vary based on the language of the speaker, adding to the confusion. Plus, people would have the instinct to put a period after the letter despite it not being an abbreviation for anything. No word on what the couple's back up choice is.
