    I don't think there should be naming laws except for certain names [Lucifer] etc.

    Thanks, Berries! It's quite interesting to hear about naming rules in other countries.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Funny, this made big news in Australia a couple of days ago and I listened to a radio program discussing Australia's naming laws and whether they should be tightened. At the moment, you can call your child anything you want, unless it's deemed offensive or contains unpronouncable symbols. The general consensus from callers to the radio program was that our rules should be tighter! However, I'm not sure about banning Lucifer. Yes, it has bad connotations, but so do a lot of other accepted names.

    I agree with the ban to a certain extent. I worked in our school board county administration and saw some terrible names. Snow White. Bud Wiser. Uterus Rose. Seriously? You just cannot fix stupid. These names are for life and parents should think about their children's lives when naming them. Why should the child have to change it later?

    It is nice to love the child as much along with the name of the child!!
