As a result the parents named their baby Ella.

The court ruling stipulated that “the first name Nutella, given to the child, is that of the commercial brand of a spread”.....on the grounds that such a name was against the girl’s interests as it would cause “mockery or disobliging remarks”.

In 1993 French law was changed so as to enable parents to choose their baby’s name themselves. Recently a name of a child Fraise (Strawberry) was also stopped as the court decided that she would face mockery. 

Silly people.
