N.Z. Couple Can't Name Their Son '4real'By Associated Press5 hours agoWELLINGTON, New Zealand - New Zealand authorities have blocked a couple's bid to officially name their new son "4real," saying numerals are not allowed.Pat and Sheena Wheaton said they decided to name their new baby "4real" shortly after having an ultrasound and being struck by the reality of his impending arrival."For most of us, when we try to figure out what our names mean, we have to look it up in a babies book and ... there's no direct link between the meaning and the name," Pat Wheaton told TV One on Wednesday. "With this name, everyone knows what it means."But when the parents filed the name with New Zealand's Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages, they were told names beginning with a number were against the rules.The government office has opened negotiations with the parents about the name under a policy that says all unusual names must be given case-by-case consideration."The name has not at this stage been rejected," Registrar-General Brian Clarke said in a statement Thursday. "We are currently in discussions with the parents ... to clarify the situation."Clarke said the rules are designed to prevent names that are "likely to cause offense to a reasonable person." Satan and Adolf Hitler were proposed names that have been declined, he said.If no compromise has been reached by July 9, the baby will be registered as "real," officials say.New Zealand law requires all children born in the South Pacific nation to be registered with the Births, Deaths and Marriages registry within two months of birth.

Do you think they'd ban the name, "We f***ed"?

If they wanna name the kid "4real", I see no problem with it. However, naming a kid

"hitler" or "satan" would cause them harm.

 

There is no problem? The kid cant defend himself. Everyone will make fun of him with that name. The reason it wasnt allowed was to protect the kid, not to stop the parents.

 

I know in the US you can name the kid anything except for swear words and numbers.

What in the heck is wrong with people? This just came across Yahoo today:

LONDON (AFP) - Baby Autumn Brown has a name to live up - in fact she has over 25 of them.

 

The little girl's mother Maria, in keeping with her boxing-mad family's bizarre tradition, decided to give her 25 middle names - all culled from the greatest exponents inside the ring.

 

Her full name, which left register office staff in Perton, Wolverhampton reeling is: Autumn Sullivan Corbett Fitzsimmons Jeffries Hart Burns Johnson Willard Dempsey Tunney Schmeling Sharkey Carnera Baer Braddock Louis Charles Walcott Marciano Patterson Johansson Liston Clay Frazier Foreman Brown.

 

Maria told the city's Express and Star: "The whole thing came about because both my mum and dad are obsessed with boxing and have a bit of a daft sense of humour.

 

"When I was young I couldn't ever remember my name. It took me to the age of 10 to memorise it all."

 

The 33-year-old mother added: "I'm hoping Autumn has a good sense of humour with her name. It's never done me any harm though."

Imagine filling out any type of form. Middle initial:

 

 

That was my first thought.

 

 

Minister says, "And do you, Autumn Sullivan Corbett Fitzsimmons Jeffries Hart Burns Johnson Willard Dempsey Tunney Schmeling Sharkey Carnera Baer Braddock Louis Charles Walcott Marciano Patterson Johansson Liston Clay Frazier Foreman Brown take thee....?"

 

Imagine her marriage certificate and passport. What a time she will have opening up a bank account....! :banghead
