Giving your child an embarrasing name is a form of abuse

Who the heck would name their poor kid "Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii" anyway?

Family Court Judge Rob Murfitt stated his concerns in a written decision after a custody hearing in New Plymouth revealed a couple had named their child Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii.

He was so disturbed at the effect on the nine-year-old that he ordered her temporarily placed under court guardianship so a suitable name could be chosen.

"It makes a fool of the child and sets her up with a social disability and handicap," he said.

The girl, who had not had her birth officially registered in NZ, had not revealed her name to her friends.

The judge was stopped talking yesterday by Principal Family Court Judge Peter Boshier. His office did provide some New Zealand-registered names the court knew of.

They included:
(twins) Fish and Chips, Masport and Mower
(boys) Yeah Detroit, Spiral Cicada, Kaos, Stallion and Hitler;
(girls) Cinderella Beauty Blossom and Twisty Poi;
(sex unknown) Keenan Got Lucky and Sex Fruit.
