Vocabulary: daughter (n), to laugh at (v), chocolate spread (n), court (n), teasing (n).


In France today, a mother and father were told that they cannot name their daughter Nutella. The French court has decided that the name is not good for a child because other children might laugh at her.

The judge said that it is not in the child’s interests to be named Nutella, which is a popular chocolate spread in France. He argued that it could lead to teasing and problems for the child in later life.

The parents of the child did not attend court when the decision was made.

The judge said that if they want, the parents can name their child Ella, instead of Nutella.
