    He is... and from all accounts, it's a wonderful place.

    but that poor girl....

    Her parents needed to be smacked upside the head. Don't you think the judge did the right thing?

    Except for the whole idea that the Government can tell you what name you can and can not use? Sucks to be her till legal age for sure. But if they were not abusing her anyway then the Government needs to BUTT out.

    For the laws in that Country? Ya he did what was allowed. Wouldn't want a law like that here.

    Courts here can deny a petition to change a name under various circumstances. I suspect a name like that would be one of them.

    Could the courts actively intervene? I suspect it depends on why and how the family came to the attention of the Court.

    How ever according to this story there is a continuing and growing problem with people in New Zealand naming their kids like this. Dr. Grump whines about us, perhaps he should clean up the retards, druggies and idiot savants that are having kids in his country?

    Which has nothing to do with the giving of the name at BIRTH. Now does it? Do try and keep up Dear.

    It's lovely country, trust me if you haven't been to the South Island you have to go. But if you visit go to the North Island first and then tour the South Island (they even have a French enclave in the South Island)

    I love Wellington (it's in the north island but it's a lovely city) I've been there a few times.

    Kiwis are different from Australians in very many ways. I think they're more reasonable and courteous than we are.

    Damnit I said good stuff about NZ. I will be excommunicated.

    Are you having one of your "moments" Jillian. Do keep up, here let me spell it out slow and easy for you, so that even your Son could understand.

    The parents named the child. The parents made NO request for a name change. The Judge seized the child, put her under State Control and HE, not the parents, CHANGED the name.

    Further in New Zealand they have a Registry, When you propose to name your child the Government HAS TO APPROVE at birth the name you chose.

    Does that help Dear? All caught up now? We on the same sheet of Music?
