SAUDI Arabia has banned the name Linda.The country’s  interior ministry says Linda contradicts the religion or the culture of the Kingdom.

It’s also banned Elaine and get this Sandy. You’d expect the Ministry is tired of fielding cll for people looking for a Sandy King. It’s a wonder that June remains ok. But give it time and a few calls asked for ‘June Buggy’ and her sort will also be banned.

The full list of banned name is below. If your name’s on the list, chances are that one day Saudi Arabia will not let you enter its wonderland. It’s a ban  akin to being forbidden from being stuck in a lift with Noel Edmonds. You might never know you’ve been banned until it’s too late and you crave sweet death.
