Lionel Messi's hometown of Rosario, Argentina, has banned people from naming their children "Messi."
And no, we're not kidding.
Local officials have passed a law barring residents from using the surname of the world's best footballer as the first name of their newborn sons and daughters.
A family who did just that for a newborn son prompted the law.
According to the SI article, Rosario residents are still permitted to name their children Maradona. Ronaldo is presumably still available, too.
