OH NO THEY DIDN’T …PARENT OF THE YEAR NOMINEES
Couple Win Battle to Name Son Lucifer
A U.K. couple has won alegal battle to name their son Lucifer.
A registrar tried to bar them because it is another name for the devil.
The official told them their four-month-old son “wouldn’t succeedin life” with that moniker.
Dan and Mandy Sheldon explained that "we are not religious people,and Lucifer in Greek means ‘light-bringer’ and ‘morning’...'
The UK has very few legal restrictions in place for names, although thosethat contain obscenities and numbers are likely to be rejected.
But many countries have strict rules.
New Zealand added Lucifer to its list of forbidden names in 2013.
