NZ Names

I heard this gem of a news article on Triple J today and I knew you'd want me to share it with you.

A New Zealand magistrate has criticised parents who give their children stupid names and ordered that a young girl's name be changed to prevent her being ridiculed.

Apparently, naming your child "Talulah does the hula from Hawaii" is not cool with the NZ judiciary.

Nor were they impressed with "Midnight Chardonnay", "Violence" or my personal favourite, "No. 16 Bus Shelter".

It's a shame the Kiwi's imaginations aren't matched by their Court's sense of humour.
