Someone finally has the right idea....
Apparently a family court judge in New Zealand has had enough of parents given their children ridiculous names.
Judge Rob Murfitt recently allowed a nine year old girl whose name was "Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii" to be renamed.
"The court is profoundly concerned about the very poor judgment which this child's parents have shown in choosing this name," he wrote. "It makes a fool of the child and sets her up with a social disability and handicap, unnecessarily."
In his ruling, Murfitt cited a list of the unfortunate names.
Registration officials blocked some names, including Fish and Chips, Yeah Detroit, Keenan Got Lucy and Sex Fruit, he said. But others were allowed, including Number 16 Bus Shelter "and tragically, Violence," he said.
Seems to me that maybe a judge here in the U.S. should get on his pony and follow suit. Suri, Honor and Apple. Sounds like a new cocktail at Chili's.
What do you think? Should parents be able to name their children despite the emotional trauma it could cause in the future?
