Italian Bishop Calls for Fewer Silly Baby Names

Msgr. Bassano Staffieri of La Spezia, Italy, wishes more baby girls were named Maria:

“A name is not just a sound, it has a profound meaning.” Mothers and fathers “should return to using a name like Maria, which is inspired by the Virgin Mary”, instead of opting for “exotic or strange names of which their children will later be ashamed”, the bishop said.

He also said that the issue is not that Italians are abandoning the Catholic faith, but that parents just aren’t putting a lot of thought into baptismal names.

This story reminds me of the Israeli rabbis who created a list of names they thought should be off-limits to Jewish children.

Do you know of any other religious leaders who have weighed in on baby name issues?
