Naming your kids after a popular meme or bit of folklore isn’t exactly a new phenomenon—there was the Egyptian guy who named his kid Facebook after the 2011 revolution in Cairo, and in Latin American countries where U.S. Navy destroyers often float by the horizon the name “Usnavy” (pronounced oos-nah-vee) is apparently a thing. But one region in India with deep ties to its former Imperial boss is notorious for taking this to a whole new level and incorporating some pretty crazy English words into its name roster. The practice can be seen in a local election, where candidate Adolf Hitler is running neck-and-neck with Frankenstein.
