Bad kids names

January 6th, 2012 at 11:00 am by David Farrar

Stuff reports:

Most-denied (July 1, 2001, to June 30, 2011)

Justice – 49

Princess – 24

King – 21

Prince – 20

Royal – 12

Duke – 7

Bishop – 7

Major – 6

J – 6

Lucifer – 6

I think any parent who tries to name their new born Lucifer, should be automatically referred to CYFS.

    Lucifer = light-bringer or morning star.

    It’s a charming name for a child. :)

    Hmmm, there is nothing wrong with a lot of these names and it is a bit precious of the government to ban them. Nobody confuses Judge Reinhold, Prince Rogers Nelson or even Duke Morrison (aka John Wayne) with a member of the judiciary or an aristocratic figurehead. Rex is Latin for King, and still appears on British coinage, but nobody bothers to ban that. They are unusual names, all of them, but not so unprecedented as to be unduly weird. Even Lucifer simply means “Light-bringer”.

    why should we protect someone who has a title.
    why have titles aren’t we all equel?
    even those with “awards” have been picked over other just as deserving people who serve this country and it’s citizens.
    all a load of baloney.

    I’m sure I’ve seen ‘Princess’ recently – a teenager if I recall correctly.

    Yet it is still okay to call brothers Kaos and Havoc…

    Lucifer is silly, but certainly not the worst.

    Mafia No Fear, Anal, V8, single letters, the Roman numerals I, II, III, punctuation symbols * . and / and titles such as President, Emperor, Chief, Constable, Sargent and General were also rejected.

    Who would call their kid Anal? WTF!

    If Hispanic peoples can call their kids Jesus why not Lucifer and what would happen if an NZer tried to call their kid Jesus ?

    I read somewhere Ozzy aborigines gave their kids an interim name until they exhibited skills beneficial to the tribe and were then named accordingly in a ceremony at around puberty.

    and euro countries taggin ‘son’ or ‘dottir’ on the end of their names depending on gender. Same as Russians adding an ‘a’ on the end depending on gender.

    The point is, it’s a slippery slope when the state decides what you can and can’t call your child baesd on cultural bias.

    If the kid doesnt like it they can always deed poll it to something else as an adult.

    When I look at DAVID Cunliffe, DAVID Parker and DAVID Shearer I think there is an excellent case for banning all people with the name of David.
    Whoops. What have I said?

    I just asked a young person what Lucifer meant. As expected, she did not know. And she’s half way through a uni. degree! I was too disheartened to go through the other names with her.

    AGW. Hmm. Much warming in the last couple of years? I was relatively amused at the predictions of 0.01 degrees warming in the oceans in the next 100 years: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/12/31/krige-the-argo-probe-data-mr-spock/ Better rush out and spend some government money on controlling CO2 levels I think.

    @PaulL

    You unbeliever!
    We should spend at least a few trillion on reducing the evil CO2 levels.
    We should cut our output by half!
    From 0.117% (The current percentage of atmospheric CO2 from human activity) to 0.0585%.
    That will make a real difference.
    Save Mother Gaia!

    But he didn’t have sex with her untill she was nine.

    Apart from that….
    He was a murderer
    He was a thief
    He held slaves
    He beat women
    He tortured people
    He was a rapist
    He was a liar

    Still doesn’t beat this one though:

    Chuck Bird says:- “How about all those how name their sons after a pedophile who took a six year old bride?”

    She wasn’t six. She was eight, and Richard is quite a nice name:

    :arrow: “In 1396, Richard II of England was joined in marriage to young Isabel of France, who had been 7 years old when their engagement was announced the previous year in Paris. Not only was there no uproar; there was considerable happiness expressed over the assumed probability that this marriage would end the Hundred Years War then in one of its periodic states of truce between the two kingdoms. Peace was to be ensured by joining together this man and this little girl in marriage.”

    Have to admit though – Richard II was a nasty piece of work. History doesn’t remember him kindly.

    There is no evidence that the marriage was ever consummated as in the case of Mohammad where it was at the age of nine. That is why for some years after the the lunatics took over Iran that the age of consent was nine. I think they now have raised it to something like 13.

    A friend named his child Ared. Unusual name I said. He was named after the Welsh Hotel that he was conceived in was the reply. Good job I didn’t follow suit or my son would be called Renalt 5…

    In NZ wasn’t there a girl called Tallulah does the hula from Hawaii or something similar? Only a few years ago, I seem to remember her being taken into care and a judge ordering a name change?

    Of course celebrities can call their kids whatever they want Michael Jackson’s kids, Bob geldof’s kids, who else?

    @Tookinator – not anymore, a Judge ordered her name changed during a family court hearing. My favourite celebrity names are those of libertarian illusionist Penn Jillette: Moxie Crimefighter and Zoltan.
