4Real? NZ reveals banned baby names

New Zealand officials have released a list of baby names put forward by parents that were rejected because they were too bizarre or offensive, including Lucifer and Mafia No Fear.

The list of 77 names reveals one child was set to be called Anal before the Department of Internal Affairs vetoed the proposal, while another narrowly avoided being dubbed . or full stop.

Other names on the list included 4Real, V8, and Queen Victoria.

In some cases, parents appeared to have lost any inspiration for coming up with a moniker for their offspring, wanting to call the latest addition to the family simply 2nd, 3rd or 5th.

The department’s rules forbid any name that might imply a child holds an official title or rank, so King, Duke and Princess were among those that had been turned down most since 2001 — via redwolf.newsvine.com
