Much as I feel that parents have a right to name their child as they wish, I can’t help but feel that the following children will be glad that the New Zealand government would not allow their parents that right:

 

  • Anal
  • . (full stop)
  • 4Real
  • V8
  • Queen Victoria
  • 2nd (also 3rd and 4th)
  • Justice (also Justus and Juztice)
  • Lucifer
  • Mafia No Fear

I guess the poor girl who was originally named Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii is delighted that Judge Rob Murfitt allowed her name to be changed; at the time of the judgement he criticised the parents of Number 16 Bus Shelter, Midnight Chardonnay and twins called Benson and Hedges.

    • I think it is popular in some African countries and I can’t really see why it should be banned, it isn’t offensive and is no different from other names like Hope, Faith etc.
      I love names… there was a girl my husband taught called Queen Elizabeth Ruthven!
