NZ Couple To Name Child Superman!

Thu Aug 09, 2007 7:45 pm

"A couple in New Zealand is planning to call their newborn son Superman after officials rejected their original choice of '4Real'.

Pat and Sheena Wheaton have been frustrated by rules in New Zealand banning names that begin with a number."

Except if he jumps off a window yelling "I'm Superman, I can fly !"

Seriously, what do people think when they name their offspring ? A friend of mine named his child with the same name of a well known sanitary brand... What was he thinking ???

Cheers,

Like the name. Seems like a positive choice as its their kid not ours. I'm sure he'll have a nickname. And plus the parents are proud of having a baby as highlighted in the article.

What's worse is that there have been people who wanted to name their kids "Satan" and "Adolf Hitler":

In the past they have had to intervene to stop parents naming their offspring Satan and Adolf Hitler.

Couldn't the people at DC Comics just sue these people for copyright infringement and save the kid the embarrassment?

Now, if I ever have kids (as if that'd ever happen), I'd never EVER do something like that to them. I'll better stick with common Italian or German names. What the hell are those people thinking?

I'd hate my parents if they did that.

Well, Nicholas Cage named his kid Kal-El. Is that any better?

Why don't they just tattoo "Kick Me" on his back?

Why not Clark Kent Wheaton, if they're such fans? That's at least classy, and would only be a minor talking point...

How about naming it "blame my dumbass parents" if it is a boy and "my parents should have just gotten a puppy" if it is a girl.

I can't believe the law won't let me slap these stupidos.
