I know! Let's come up with a local/state/federal law +/or constitutional amendment regarding the naming of babies!
(you may now say 'TSK!' and roll your eyes.)
Some other names that were allowed however were Violence, Midnight Chardonnay and Number 16 Bus Shelter.
I know a couple of people who hate their first names, and go by their middle names or other names entirely. One RT because she says "I am not a male deer from a Disney movie or a porn star!" Another just flat out refuses to state what her name is.

but his parents were adamant that he was herbert and would use a version of that name. he still loathes his name because he says it's an "old fart" name and people never expect who they get.
my dad was named for his grandfather. aside from the fact that he said "charles" conjured up an image
of a sissified fat kid in a velvet suit and a silk shirt, worn with long stockings, and patent leather pumps, which was bad enough, he and his grandfather lived in the same town and their mail got mixed up, once my dad was old enough to get any.
what's the answer? i have no idea whatsoever. maybe to just call all kids "hey you!":d

Kid you not, and I'm going for the phonetic, God only knows how she actually spelled it. Name of their tomcat? Sam. Go figure.
Her daughter had her name legally changed to "Callie" in college. I don't know how you'd have gotten that onto a diploma....
