No, it isn't just a name. Calling your kid Adolf Hitler is like calling your kid "Evil Bastard". Everyone knows what the name means, everyone knows the connotations it holds, and all the connotations it holds are negative. It is no-longer "just a name". The man is considered the single most evil man of the 20th Century by just about everyone, and if not the most evil, definitely one of the greatest practitioners of genocide in living memory. If you dismiss Adolf Hitler as "just a name", I don't think you quite grasp what that name means for a lot of people, and a lot of people who've suffered because of the things he did.
