Maybe we should not worry so much about what other people are doing, or what 
other people think.  At one point, the excellent link Pedro posted states:

	In another episode of The Unbelievable Truth, one of the unlikely-sounding 	
	truths was that, in Hitler's Germany, it was forbidden to name domestic 
	animals Adolf in case this led to ridicule of the Führer.

Indeed, we wouldn't want to offend someone of such a clearly sensitive nature!

And then of course, we have the corollary with a man recently getting a prison 
term for training his dog to do the nazi salute:

Political correctness gone barking...
