…takes on a whole new meaning these days.

A New Zealand’s name registrar rejected requests from three sets of parents to give their child a devilish name.

Yes, Lucifer has been banned.

First of all, what kind of idiot would name their child Lucifer?

Lucifer Satan Judas Smith IV

Secondly, isn’t school tough enough for kids without a name that begs for taunting, teasing, and bullying?

I mean, really, folks.  Three sets of parents wanted to name their kid Lucifer!!

It’s not only demonic, stupid, and ill-thought, it’s cruel.

I am glad that we don’t have a “name registrar” in the US, the first ammendment seems to prevent that, but it might have prevented a few oddities I’ve heard.

Honestly, “Shithead” pronounced, Chee theed, is bad enough.
