Default NZ judge backs girl over 'embarrassing' name

Quote:
A New Zealand judge has made a 9-year-old girl a ward of the court so that her name can be changed from Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii, the country's national news agency reported Thursday.

Family Court Judge Rob Murfitt listed a series of unusual names that New Zealand parents had given their children, and said he was concerned that such strange monikers would create hurdles for them as they grew up.

"It makes a fool of the child and sets her up with a social disability and handicap," the New Zealand Press Association quoted the judge as saying.

Among the names Murfitt cited: twins named Benson and Hedges -- after a brand of cigarettes; Violence; and Number 16 Bus Shelter.

Some parents had named children after six-cylinder Ford cars, the news agency reported. iReport.com: Do you have a unique name?

The Registrar General of Births, Deaths and Marriages said in a statement that it had rejected names including Fish and Chips, Yeah Detroit, Stallion, Twisty Poi -- a staple food in Polynesian cuisine -- and Sex Fruit.

A lawyer for Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii said the girl is so embarrassed by her name that friends know her as "K."

Last month, a judge in the U.S. state of Illinois allowed a school bus driver to legally change his first name to "In God" and his last name to "We Trust."

But an appeals court in the state of New Mexico ruled against a man -- named Variable -- who wanted to change his name to a two-word phrase that contains a four-letter expletive and expresses opposition to censorship.

Thought it was funny. In my country, people used to give all kinds of names to the newborn children in the old days, but the reason is kinda like to protect them from bad omens or devilish force something like that, because they believed the kids are vulnerable to those kinds of things. You could still meet people with names like Broken pan, Bad dog, Who knew, Never knew, Nobody, Iron axe, Woman, & etc. in Mongolia.

But my favorite is TerbishDagva which means "That's-not-him-It's-Dagva"

The spousal unit went to school with a girl named Merry Christmas,

Her Grandmother's name is Iona Butt and the kids thought her Aunts name was Rosey Butt, but it was actually Helen.

I bet I get in trouble for posting this one.
