Submission + - Government Approved Baby Names (

soapthgr8 writes: "In an attempt to provide a meaningful name for their newborn, a New Zealand couple has encountered resistance from the Registry of Births, Deaths, and Marriages. It seems that "numerals are not allowed" in names, although, the Registrar-General indicates that the "name has not at this stage been rejected." How far is too far for governmental prevention of the crime of possible "offense"? This appears to cross that line."
