I'm glad there is an agency which prevents that.  Do they also put the baby immediately in foster care?  That should be the next step after denying the name.

Next step is sending someone to the parents' home to slap them across the face, and tell them not to be douche-bags.

Some of those names exist traditionally, like Judge or Justice.
Seems like the rule is a little broader in application than might be necessary.

Sweden also has a naming law and has nixed attempts to name children "Superman," "Metallica," and the oh-so-easy-to-pronounce "Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116."

I didn't realize Sweden had such a serious problem with cråck.

Perhaps not racist - perhaps just exhibiting feelings of superiority or, deep rooted fear of the unfamiliar.  None of which is attractive or positive.

Of course they had to ban that name. If someone would have pronounced it backwards, a wormhole to the third plain of Hell would have opened up.

See Farkers? That's how to make an argument. Now, if you will allow me to retort...

I wasn't exhibiting feelings of superiority or fear, merely bewilderment. I see a lot more farked up names these days than when I was young (I'm partially retired, and waiting on my cane so I can shake it at whippersnappers). I used to think it was ridiculous to name your kids after cities or states (I still do), and if you name your child Destiny, Chastity, or Bambi, no one is going to take them seriously - at least not at first. I only mentioned Messiah and Blessing because they were relevant to the original article, which is what I assumed this comment section was for (silly me). I wasn't being racist or elitist, merely providing a commentary. I live in a semi-urban area (Norfolk, VA) and call my city the hood, because compared to where I'm from (Indiana) it is. Norfolk, however, is multi-racial, multi-cultural, and has a diverse economic spectrum. I didn't say black people name their kids funny, or rednecks name their kids funny, or Mexicans name their kids funny. But, you have to admit, the current generation of people spitting out kids lately have come up with some ridiculous never-before-seen names. That's my non-racist, generationally-eletist opinion which I'm entitled to have - just like they're entitled to name their kids whatever they want (as long as they don't live in New Zealand, who has rules about such things).

This - we need to stop using the terms "racist" and "racism" as all-purpose terms for all cultural prejudice or bigotry.
The assholishness here lies in the unspoken assumption that the name "Messiah" is any more or less "ridiculous" than the name "John" (which actually means "God's great gift" in literal translation).
EZwriter isn't a racist - he's just an asshole who assumes his own cultural superiority. Fark is full of them.
