France Lets Parents Give Baby Vampire Name

The French are notoriously uptight about what one can and cannot name their baby, but they've decided to let one newborn keep his name, even though his parents heard it on an American show aimed at teenagers. In November Lionel and Blandine Defontaine dubbed their boy "Daemon" after the character Damon on The Vampire Diaries. The "e" was added to make the name sound more French, and it seems that was enough to convince the court. They may have let it slide this time, but don't think you can name your baby Pilot Inspektoré and get away with it.
