A New Jersey appeals court ruled that parents who gave their children names linked to Nazism cannot have custody of the children.

The court overturned a family court’s decision to return the three children, who had been removed from the home of their parents, Heath and Deborah Campbell, in January 2009.

Adolf Hitler Campbell, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell were removed from their home in western New Jersey, near the Pennsylvania border, a month after a highly publicized incident in which a supermarket refused to print Adolf Hitler Campbell’s full name on a birthday cake.

The appeals court said it believed there was enough evidence that the parents had abused or neglected the children, the Associated Press reported. The court did not uphold the removal of the children because of their names, according to reports.

Court records show that neither parent is employed and both have disabilities.
