(Newser) – If you thought it was weird and vaguely inappropriate that the general public knows the name of Amanda Berry's daughter, born while Berry was being held captive by Ariel Castro, well, a Cuyahoga County Common Pleas judge appears to feel similarly. Judge Michael Russo has ordered that the child's name be redacted from all public records and filings related to the Ohio kidnapping case, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty sought the move in order to protect the little girl's privacy. (Castro's adult son recently wrote a column about his father.)
