Apparently, there's a rule in France that gives the courts the power to veto names if prosecutors believe it's in the child's best interest.

A French news website called "The Local" reports the girl's parents have postponed the their child's baptism until the case is settled.

At this time, there is no word when the date of the trial will be.
