Little Adolf Hitler's Parents Lose Custody of Their Latest Baby

Thumbnail image for worstbabynames.jpg
The parents of Adolf Hitler, the 5-year-old New Jersey child with the most unfortunate name, have had their newest baby, a boy named Hons Campbell, taken away from them as well. Adolf and his sisters, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie, were all taken into custody by New Jersey Youth and Family Services in 2009. The Campbells, Heath and Deborah, say they don't know why Hons was taken, and the agency has reportedly been prohibited from talking about it. However, last year an appeals court ruled that the older children were at risk due to the parents' "unspecified physical and psychological disabilities," including violence in the home.

There was also apparently evidence of abuse or neglect, found by a family court, which the Campbells say is untrue -- they say their children were taken because of their Nazi-inspired names. The Department of Youth and Family Services has denied that:

A DYFS spokesperson told ABCNews.com in 2009 that she could not comment on a specific case, but said children are only taken into custody if there is a suspicion of abuse or neglect.

"We would never remove a child simply based on their name," the spokeswoman said.

Those three kids remain in foster care, while a hearing over the custody status of Hons is scheduled for today.

But..seriously, wouldn't a nice Twilight-derived monicker have sufficed?

I ma not aware of the exact situation but I can only say that kid should never be parted from their parents as it is very difficult for both to live a best life.

Ironic because "in the best interest of the child" is actually an Adolph Hitler quote!

There's no good reason for two emotionally and mentally stable loving caring parents to sympathize with the nazi cause so deeply that they feel the need to name their children after the previous century's most notorious mass murderer. It's not because they named their children these names, it's the reasoning behind it. It is as bad as, if not worse than naming your child Charles Manson or Ted Bundy for crying out loud! I'm so glad my parents are not psychologically damaged as is the case of these two people.

If you're on some sort of white power kick and the government knows about it, naming your kid after Hitler is the wrong way to go about it. Think about it then choose from some of these names:

Baldur von Shirach (first leader of the Hitler Youth)Heinz Guderian (German general; created the panzer division, hated Hitler but not enough to stop or kill him)Henry Ford (hated Jews, wrote a Jew-hating book, got medal from German counsulate)Charles Lindbergh (pro-Nazi and isolationist in the 1930s-1940s)Vidkun Quisling (Nowegian Nazi and collaborator, 1940s)Reinhard Heydrich (Head of the Gestapo, ran Bohemia until Free Czech agents blew him up)Heinrich Himmler (Heydrich's boss, founder and leader of the SS)Hasso von Manteufel (German field general; Patton's opponent on the Franco-German border)Kurt Tank (aviation engineer, created the Focke-Wulf 190; Germany's best fighter plane, worked for the Indian aviation industry in 1950s-60s)

....And these are just the people I can come up with off the top of my head. If the skinhead yahoos don't like those names I can give you Boyd Rice (Satanist, ex-uniformed American Nazi, musician) or George Lincoln Rockwell (assassinated leader of the American Nazi Party) or fill-in-the-blank. For every well-known Communist dictator there are five or six lesser-known Fascist/Nazi/Natavist/Klan nutballs. And some of them have links to both major American parties.

How can anyone name their child Adolf Hitler?!It's disgusting to name anyone after that despicable monster.

Why I find these Children's names deplorable, these parents have the right to name their children anything they wish.  What's to stop the family services ( the GOVERNMENT) from zoning in on Christian families that have children with Biblical names such as my own children. I have a Hezekiah, Elijah and Micah. the first two are adults but Micah is 13. Now if they are truly being abused then that is a whole other matter, they should be taken out of the home, but NOT for their names. If we start picking and choosing our free speech then rest assure yours will be next in line.

I despise what their parents did in naming their kids, but I really do think that after all the attention the parents tried to get for themselves, they have been hounded by people looking for a "happy ending" to all of this.

I just feel sorry for the kids who were spawned by these damn attention whores when their plan backfired and everyone reacted. I'd put money on them being pretty good parents to the best of their ability because they KNEW they were being watched if nothing else.

So yeah, you made your children sandwich boards instead of people. Yes the whole town then conspired to get your children taken away from you because they didn't like the sign. You're still the bigger tool in this monstrous situation for using children like that. I hope your kids don't hate you, get back with you, remove the name when they can and just never invite the grandparents to social gatherings, ever.

I'm just glad my own son, Billy "will give you AIDS and steal your money because he is a complete dick" Smith will have none of the obstacles you put in your own kids' paths to deal with.

I dont believe that the state should be able to legally kidnap your kids based upon suspicion only. They should have to provide concrete proof that there is abuse. I guess that leaves room for anyone to make a claim about anyone with kids and the state can just step in and over power and ruin a family over hear say and suspicion..get real the state is a joke and takes advantage of having the power that they have been given. How sad that everyone has to judge what they named there kids...so what!! Its there kids. Those kids she be returned back to the parents..

Most of this discussion is a real waste of time by people who don't have any idea what they are talking about. I am currently a social worker and know that there are a very long list of things that most of us think are "reasons to remove a child" but the law does not allow removal for those things. The child(ren) have to be in a situation that is neglectful and/or abusive in some way before the law will allow removal. Even then, at times we are forced to work with the family before removal - removal is last resort unless there is immediate danger. This situation cannot be discussed for the very same reason that your business cannot be discussed with just anybody who thinks they need to know. Children's services are not allowed to discuss any cases, it's not everybody's business. I will agree that there are times mistakes are made - it happens to everybody in every business and every walk of life - but the system has to be followed.

Can anybody understand the stigma this child will have as he grows up?  Some things ought to be retired and the name of one of the world's worst criminals is one of them.   One only has to see that these parents are mentally off naming their children this way.  And if there was abuse, wouldn't anyone remove these children before they are both physically and mentally traumatized??

If they are naming their children these names does it not stand to reason that they believe these people were in the right when they did the things they did? People who think dead presidents were heros name their children after people they think did good things, if these people are naming their children after Nazi elite then one could assume that they see Hitler as a hero. It shows their morals and the kind of thinking the children will be subjected to.I understand that people should have basic rights, but when the things you do cause harm or potential harm to children then there are rules for that. Children are defenseless. When you drive a child around without a safety belt/harness you get charged for child endangerment. It doesn't matter if you are in an accident or not the potential for an accident is enough to charge you. To me, this is the same, the names they gave their children could lead to potential harm, and in assuming that they see Hitler as a hero, one would also have to assume they have the same beliefs as Hitler. In American society today acts of violence based on hate carries a harsher punishment that regular assault for the simple fact that our society regulates hate. Do you think these parents would have taught these children that couldn't commit acts of violence based on hate?

I recall when they first started naming their children. Even though I do not agree, they do have the right to name them whatever. I would just hope they would consider how those kids would get treated in school with such names? If they were my parents I am sure I would be looking into a name change later in life....

If someone wanted to name their child after Mao, Stalin, or any other person including Attila, Bush, Lincoln, Grant, all who in many eyes world over feel that are mass muderers. William Wallace said "those who write history, hang our heroes. Grant is responcible along with Lincoln, and Custer has killed millions of my people. But, no one is going to court over that. The occupied people of Palestine  has endured much genocide and murderer at their keepers hands and we are directly responcible for supporting the Zionist regime. So, hypocrits, wave on and pretend to be rightous and see the pathetic real reason why the ruling elite want to control what you name your children.

Irregardless of why these children were taken I applaud the fact they were.  Naming them these names alone shows the flawed character and obvious mental instability of these two individuals.   Another example of the fact children should be deemed a privilege and not a right.

you know this country has gotten too far left ... If I had the balls I would have done exactly the same as these parents, who is to say what we can and what we can't name our children, and as long as they are clean, have a roof over their heads, clean clothes on their backs and educated...what's in a name

I highly doubt the kids were taken away because of their names only. I think the fact that they were given Nazi inspired names is a pretty big smoking gun and I am sure it is a big factor in the parents being subject to closer scrutiny. I would not be suprised if these two are horrific parents at all. If it looks like dog sh*t, smells like dog sh*t and tastes like dog sh*t, it most likely is dog sh*t...........

It is always really convenient for social services agencies to not be able to comment on it. While I think it is horrible to name a kid that, I am very concerned about government making decisions based on things like names. The fact that they deny it was because the name and say we would never, makes me think it was definitely the name.

Carolyn, I work in family law and believe me the Department of Children's Services is the most corrupt, noncooperative department out of all the areas I deal with. They could care less about those children and will lie or do whatever they have to in order for their department to "win" regardless of who gets hurt. I'm not saying they've never helped "any" children, but as a rule they are worthless.

Being a social worker, I can say there would of had to have been evidence to support claims of neglect or abuse.  But, as parents, why would you subject your child to unnecessary ridicule with names of some of the most horrific criminals known to man?  Who would do that and not expect their child to be a target for all kinds of bullying.  I mean, Adolf Hitler for a kids name?  Really? 

Ajberg51

These children that were taken away in 2009 need to have a reason why they were taken away. I don't know how CPS was able to take away the children and the new born if they cannot say why. This is the United States. If taken away because of name or belief, then the United States is as bad as Hitler in World War two. We cannot let this happen here in the United States. I believe and many U S citizens need to know now that it has been in the news, as the parents.Yes we all have the right to know, to protect ourselves and others from this type of devastation of legal kidnapping.

This is clearly a perfect situation where a name change would be most appropiate for Adolf when he gets older, that name he has is awful

It would be illegal and against the constitution to take the children because of their legal names. Little Adolf is 5 years old, so I doubt someone woke up and suddenly said hey let's take the kids. Obviously there were real issues in the home.  How about we change the change to the next scheduled program and and quit wasting our time with this.

You didn't get the joke; I was accusing those two pieces of trash of being lazy in their white power idiocy.

The way things are, you name a child Ted Bundy and people will say "So you're really into 'Married with Children', eh?"

But everybody knows ol' crazy Charlie....there is a Nazi link with Manson; James Mason (not the actor), a  long-time participant in American Naziism actially made Charles the honorary leader of his now-defunct "Universal Order" group. Those guys were like the original NSDAP, but on steroids and speed.

I say, always know who your enemies are, and everybody I listed was.

How could you possibly think naming children from God's Holy Word is the same thing as naming your children after evil and corruption? Perhaps you need to find out what's in the bible before you make a comparison like that. hmmmmm.

So do you really think it is appropriate to name your child something like Hitler? I think folks can name their children whatever they want, but they should  be prepared to face the repercussions. I imagine that poor little Hitler will want to change his name once he is legally able to, but he sure will have a rough time of it in life up until that point.As a mother, I want the best for my child. I would never dream of pushing my own agenda upon him in  the way that these fools have and making his life any more difficult than it already is.   I am not a hypocrite nor self  righteous just because I think these parents are idiots. And I don't care what the "ruling" elite have to say about anything. Plain and simple, these parents are so very wrong to have done this to their children.

If you had named a kid Adolf Hitler, I would hope it would get taken away from you also! That child has to be put in a decent family environment that doesn't teach hate and horrible values. The parents have to be insane and full of hate to do that to their kids.

Paul
Paul

The fact they deny it was because of the name makes you think it was the reason?  Had they not denied it, would that not also have indicated it was because of the name?  What about if they confessed to it being the name?  Seems you would believe it was the name regardless of their response if to you denying something is probative of it being true.  I find people such as yourself, while not necessarily neo-nazis for their defense, usually actually are.

I love how one child can be removed because living circumstances are deemed unfit but they leave two other children in the same house. True case in Texas. Its great how this system is such a great failure. I dont agree with their motives behind their names, but lets be real, thats exactly what through this case into CPSs crosshairs. Someone said they were promoting hate through their children. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs irrigardless of how unfounded they are. These poor babies didnt have a chance to start life now its going to be forever ruined because this will follow them FOREVER.

Somehow taking away children from parents like these two just does not equal the murder of 50 millions of people both in war & in concentration camps, the making of lamp shades out of human skin, multilating & murdering thousands of  people in "scientific" experiments, throwing living babies into bonfires, the destruction of entire cities, the sinking of unarmed ships, hanging people from meat hooks, etc.  Who can even list the atrocities of Adolph Hitler and of those who followed him?And you think that taking a child who is probably being abused from his/her parents is equal to this?  Learn some history before you start flauting ignorance.

Too many children have been given back to their parents only to find the situation resulting in worse abuse and death..
