(Newser) – A New Jersey married couple who decided to name their children in honor of famous Nazis—including their 6-year-old son Adolf Hitler Campbell—are now legally prohibited from regaining custody of their four children. A judge made the ruling after a lengthy legal battle that began in 2009, reports the Huffington Post.

Adolf Hitler's siblings include JoyceLynn Aryan Nation, 5, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeanne, 6. Child welfare officials took custody of the kids after an incident in 2009 when a store refused to decorate a birthday cake with Adolf's name. In 2010, a judge ruled that the children were in danger at home because of reports of domestic violence. The parents, Heath and Deborah Campbell, both self-proclaimed Nazis, are now separated.
