Jesus Christ: This one seems pretty obvious and doesn't need much of an explanation.
Santa Claus: Can you imagine having a child and naming it Santa Claus? They'd expect Christmas every. single. day. Thankfully, it's not an option.
Adolph Hitler: Yep, this guy. Do we even need to explain why his name is banned? He's basically the evilest person ever to exist.
