Mexican state bans weirder names, including 'Facebook' and 'Rambo'

HERMOSILLO, Mexico - No more little Facebooks or Panties in the Mexican state of Sonora. Officials are banning those names for children.

There's a list of more than 60 names that are forbidden in the state.

Sonora Civil Registry director Cristina Ramirez says the banned names are "derogatory" and might subject the children to bullying.

Other banned names include Rambo, Lady Di, Martian and Circumcision.

Sonora is across the border from the U.S. state of Arizona.
