Court: Girl can't be called Talula Does The Hula
New Zealand judge criticizes parents and orders 9-year-old to be renamed
updated 6:32 a.m. ET July 24, 2008
WELLINGTON, New Zealand - A family court judge in New Zealand has had enough with parents giving their children bizarre names here, and did something about it.
Just ask Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii. He had her renamed.
Judge Rob Murfitt made the 9-year-old girl a ward of the court so that her name could be changed, he said in a ruling made public Thursday. The girl was involved in a custody battle, he said.
The new name was not made public to protect the girl's privacy.
'Very poor judgment'
"The court is profoundly concerned about the very poor judgment which this child's parents have shown in choosing this name," he wrote. "It makes a fool of the child and sets her up with a social disability and handicap, unnecessarily."
The girl had been so embarrassed at the name that she had never told her closest friends what it was. She told people to call her "K" instead, the girl's lawyer, Colleen MacLeod, told the court.
In his ruling, Murfitt cited a list of the unfortunate names.
Registration officials blocked some names, including Fish and Chips, Yeah Detroit, Keenan Got Lucy and Sex Fruit, he said. But others were allowed, including Number 16 Bus Shelter "and tragically, Violence," he said.

Nth American Indians had a quaint arrangement for naming their sprogs- sorry papooses. At the birth the father would name the newborn whatever he saw or what was happening out side of the Wigwam - Teepee. like Sitting Bull or White Cloud, and quite often
'Two Dogs Bonking'.
Are there any other peculior names you could add to this list?.
my mom and dad called me Baba
Sebastian had too many syllables in it
they nicknamed me baba
I went through hell in school and college
and I turned red when i was called baba
Baba is the equivalent of sisy in India
or a boy named Sue
then there was this girl who always played with her hair
when she was nervous
she fidgetted with her hair
when she cried
she sobbed in her hair
when she was in a seductive mood
she wud play with her hair
when she danced
her hair swirled
she had long hair
verry long it reached to her butt
and it was smelly
we called her hair in Hindi

Hence Saby, baba. It could also mean Bastard in Portuguese, correct me if I am wrong
Mens ears should be called goalposts and their balls should go between them.
I have heard of guys being called Hoss, Donkey, Sausage and Salami and I'll bet there are a few ex kiwi maidens called Wellington oval or the Mount Cook Bike.

I was subtle I think
what I am going to say now
u and the other guys here may not like
but it is not just what I am saying
its what a doc said
Death and Sexual Love have always been taboo subjects since time immemorial
u remind me of DIAGO 101
the SOB has outlived 2 wives
he still walks on his own legs
(while his son is on a wheel chair)
he still has a Dick that grows hard when he sees sexy women
he still laffs hard and long when he hears good jokes
but mid laffter, he stops
he forgets what he is laffing about
but he never cries
she thinks she can say bye
no way ..
. My longing heart***No ways u'll never do that.
6. A bunch of strings that I was attached to***U'd love to but i dont think u do that or else u'd be a different person altogether by now.
5. To Blogville***I dont think so, i m sure u cant live without air, water and blogging ...
Thank goodness the Judge ruled for the child. Many more poor unfortunates (from all over the world) are still stuck with their silly names. Esp pop stars and movie stars kids. Apple, Ziggy Pop, Peaches, etc. Too hideous for words.
