What's in a name? Plenty...

A judge in New Zealand made a young girl a ward of court so that she could change the name she hated - "Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii".

Officials had blocked Sex Fruit, Keenan Got Lucy and Yeah Detroit, he said, but Number 16 Bus Shelter, Violence and Midnight Chardonnay had been allowed.

One mother wanted to name her child O.crnia using text language, but was later persuaded to use Oceania.

I wrote about people and silly names before, and here it continues...

The girl in the above story is 9 but smart enough to want her name changed. Do parents ever think what the hell they are putting their kids through?
