Child Naming in New Zealand

I found this article on MSN earlier, and would be interested to know what my friends in NZ think of it!

Naming a child is something that most parents agonise for weeks or even months about. I can’t understand how people can be so flippant about something which affects another person so much. They should be ashamed of themselves.

    Sadly, this pales in comparison to some of the baby names coming out of the United States at the moment. Some parents are morons and should have their baby-making licences revoked.

    Surely if you’re registering a childs name and they tell you they want to name their child “Sex Fruit” you’d point blank refuse?

    There’s freedom of speech and this unfortunately extends to freedom of stupidity in some cases.

    The term “child abuse” shouldn’t be used too lightly here. I think that giving a kid a name like Sex Fruit is stupid and certainly tends towards abusive.

    When I was changing my name by Deed Poll I noticed the Uk had a pretty good stance on what you can and can’t change your name to: http://www.ukdps.co.uk/AreThereAnyRestrictionsOnNames.html

    “We will not accept an application for a name that we consider vulgar, offensive, blasphemous or unsuitable” along with a few other restrictions.
