Ban on Vladimir Putin
According to reports, Swedish tax authorities have banned a couple from naming their son Vladimir Putin. The parents submitted a proposal to the tax agency to nominate their child after the Russian president. Under Swedish law, such names can be banned if the child’s name is offensive or inconvenient.
