New Zealand's banned names: Lucifer, Christ, Anal

UPI News Service, 05/01/2013 

New Zealand officials released the country's list of banned baby names, including Lucifer, which has been requested six times since 2001.

The Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages, which must approve all requests for baby names, said the last 12 years have seen six failed requests for the name Lucifer as well as 62 rejections for Justice, 31 failed requests for King, 28 rejected requests for princess, 27 failed requests for Price and 25 rejections for Royal, CNN reported Wednesday.

Other names on the registrar's banned list include Duke, Major, Bishop, Majesty, Knight, Lady, Messiah, Christ, Lord and Rogue.

Officials said they also received one request for the name Anal, which was rejected.

The registrar's list also bans the use of brackets around middle names, which were requested four times, and using a backslash between names, which was requested eight times.

The agency said approved names must not be considered offensive to a reasonable person, must not be unreasonably long and must not resemble an official title or rank.
