    It is illegal to name your child "Blue" in Chihuahua, Mexico.
    According to a report on ABC news it is against the law to name your child Blue (or azul in spanish) in Chihuahua, Mexico.“Chihuahua state officials in Juarez tell ABC-7 the law is not anything new, but with a recent rash of parents trying to name their children odd, creative, and foreign names they say it’s time to remind the public of what is appropriate and what is not.Names such as Lluvia, which means rain, or azul, which means blue, are not considered ‘proper.’ If a parent names their child what’s considered a ‘foreign’ name, like Kevin, Brian, or Karen, it must be followed by a Spanish middle name, like Jose or Maria.”

    • JugularKill

      “Illuminati’s Very Youngest” Doesn’t even make any grammatical sense,

      From their music, lyrical writing skills and composure I’m certain Jay-z and Beyonce can spell.

      Only some ghetto ass brainwashed kid would come up with a dumb ass meaning like that.
