Until recently, it could in France, where all children had to be named
Didier or Marie-Claire. This drove the Muslims and others nuts, of
course, and now the rule has receded into the past, as I've read. The
town clerk simply wouldn't register non-French names. Would the
French take the children away from parents who named their kids
improperly? I can see the French removing the parents from a kid
named "Adolf Hitler J'ne se quoi."
Here it would depend on the particular community, I suspect, but I see
Palmore v. Sidoti looming large for some reason. Government not
pandering to the prejudices of the majority, I suspect.
