French parents prevented from naming baby ‘Griezmann Mbappe’ by court

A French couple have been barred from naming their baby son ‘Griezmann Mbappe’ after a five-month court process.

Last November, an issue arose when the football supporting family attempted to register their newborn under the World Cup winners’ names.

They were initially prevented from doing so and now this decision has been officially upheld in court.

Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe were two of France’s star attackers en route to World Cup victory in 2018 and both scored in the 4-2 final win over Croatia.

As a result, the parents wanted the name their child after the due, but according to La Montagne, this wasn’t allowed because: “These first names seem contrary to the interests of the child or ignore the right of third parties to have their family names protected.”

The boy has instead been called Danny Noe.
