"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."

Well, this is because a couple named their little girl "Talula Does the Hula."

What the hell are going to name your kid? Scousers Are Scum?

#3 Posted by epic_pets (1345 posts) -

Thats dumb

#4 Posted by henjin (825 posts) -

What kind of name is "Talula Does the Hula."? Its quite obvious they didn't want the child, and she should be taken away from the ASAP. Who knows what other things theyve been doing to her. Poor child.
Also whats with your username?

...because they are only "your kids" until they get older, you should have the right to name them, not subject them to ridicule their entire lives for having a dumb name.

That's one of the stupidest names I've ever seen and I think the judge is right, that girl would get made fun of relentlessly.

maybe... you got a problem with that? its called FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

let me guess, the names Antuane, Rashida, Shaquam should be banned too, because they are considered "WEIRD"? you want them to name their kids, "TOM", "JIM" and "LISA"....right?

3rd reich culture, its facism all over again.

So you wouldn't care if you parents named you "little piece of shit"?
Well, according to your logic, you shouldn't care. Otherwise you would be contradicting yourself.
Freedom of speech is great, but not when it greatly offends upon someones' well being in a way that it is permanent. Like this case.  It is not fascism all over again, get your facts straight.

If im from a different Culture, and i want to name my child according to that, why should I have to ask the Government's permission if its "WEIRD" or not ?

Imagine this, Im an asian, from Korea , i want to name my child Tyrone Dong.......that would be banned, but it might mean something else according to me. see my point? this is just modern NAZI type behavior. sorry everyone doesnt follow the western culture and name their kids, tom, dick and harry.......

freedom of speech? are you stupid? this doesn't fall under that, its not them expressing them selves, they are naming there child, has nothing to do with the parents and there freedom to express themselves, but one great thing about freedom is you have the freedom not to be ridiculed or forced to live with a stupid name. I cant believe you even said freedom of speech....idiot

they can only change it once they are a certain age, or do you not know anything? That means they are forced to go through school with a name they dont like, one that is completely idiotic and most likely subject to ridicule. I mean you make it seem like you OWN your children, only to a point my friend, once you do things to hurt them physically and mentally, the law has the right to step in.

Because it does the same exact thing as taking the child away and punishing the parents.  It just does it widespread and stops any stupid names before it happens.

I would argue that some distinction needs to be made between "foreign", "weird" and "ridiculous".  The names you listed are merely foreign to most people, they're the product of cultural differences. Weird names would be more on par with Frank Zappa's son (Dweezil) and daughter (Moon Unit), or some traditional crank call names (I have personally met both Anita Butt and Iona Pye). Assuming all parties involved are content, there's nothing wrong with any of that. That being said, as a culture, we should have some base standards to prevent overzealous attention seekers from making the system unworkable for the rest of us... for example, some things that come to mind which should not be allowed (or at least be put up for scruitiny): Trademarks (particularly those not owned by the parents), non-alphabetical characters (Joe2512 Smith), and unpronounceable mashes of letters (Xqtmbfrk Jones). It can be reasonably argued that "Talula Hula" would fall into the "weird" category, but the addition of "Does the" sends it into "ridiculous" territory.

If I knew someone who named there Kid Tulala does the Hula I would have to question there saniety, and in some cases if its a foreign name thats been banned and the person with the name has the appropriate background im sure it can be argued to over-rule it.

well the mere fact that those names are used by people and are excepted, I mean the name they are fighting over is ridiculous, no one has ever named there child something so stupid. I mean what is next, being allowed to name your child I Love Giant Bomb? It has to stop at some point, and this is a good name to stop it with, because it is stupid and not right for the child.
