The New Jersey couple who gave their children Nazi-inspired names failed in their most recent attempt to regain custody of their children, according to various reports.
The decision was first reported by the Star-Ledger which said Heath Campbell, the father of Adolf Hitler, 6, Honszlynn Hinler Jenna, 6, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation, 5, and Hons, who was born last November, told the publication that he wasn't getting his kids back.
Heath and Deborah Campbell, who live in Hunterdon County, lost their latest appeal to the New Jersey Superior Court, the Huffington Post reported.
The couple first made headlines in January 2009 when they ordered a cake for Adolf Hitler's third birthday. They wanted his name written on the cake. The first store refused to do that, but another store honored the request. That incident led the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services to look into the Campbell household.
Custody of the Campbell’s elder children was granted to the state in 2009 when they were accused of displaying violent behavior at home and then Hons was taken soon after he was born.
The couple denies any violence.
"The names, I believe are the problems. But they just don’t want to come out and say that,” Deborah said three years ago. “They belong home with their mother and father. They don’t belong out there in a stranger’s home.”

A New Jersey appeals court ruled in August 2010 that there was sufficient evidence of abuse or neglect because of domestic violence in the home, and though there was a gag order for both parties in the case (which the Campbells have broken multiple times to deny the allegations), authorities have stated in the past that putting the children into the foster system had nothing to do with their names.
“They beg to come home all the time,” Deborah told NBC10 during a custody protest last year.
The Campbells are now separated with Heath still living in Holland Township while Deborah living out of state, reported the Star-Ledger.
The couple plans to appeal the latest decision, according to UPI.
