"My father named me after this man. He probably didn't understand what Adolf Hitler stood for," he said.
A man named Adolf Hitler Uunona has recently won 85 percent of the vote in an election as councilor for the Ompundja Constituency. And yes, he is named after the Adolf Hitler.
Uunona told Bild, a German paper, "My father named me after this man. He probably didn't understand what Adolf Hitler stood for. As a child, I saw it as a totally normal name. Only as a teenager did I understand that this man wanted to conquer the whole world."
"The fact I have this name does not mean I want to conquer Oshana," he added. "It doesn't mean I'm striving for world domination."
According to The Daily Mail, about 120,000 Germans are estimated to visit Namibia each year, with a small community of German-speaking people residing there.
On the election ballot, the politician was simply listed as Adolf H. Uunona. Uunona said that his wife calls him Adolf and that it would be too late for him to change his name officially. But we'd argue that it's never too late!
The reactions on Twitter of this man's name have been nothing short of entertaining:
