    Thank goodness for this judge. I thought I had trouble being a tipple 'B'. What an awful and unloving name those parents gave their child.

    Cheers,

    poor kid... it's hard enough with actual physical things that other kids will tease you about, eg pimples... and to have this to boot...

    I fall short of voting for incarceration for being stupid... but maybe a stupid tax!!!

    I was so sheltered as a kid, if they had taxed me every time I did something stupid, i'd have been in debtors prison by 25! lol

    In the Uk it's either stupid names (usually celebrities) or back to old fashioned names, eg Oscar, Thomas, Matthew, Grace. (but don't quote me!)

    In Germany, parents actually have to get names for children approved before they will be officially recognized. When you read examples like this, you can really see the sense in that. Though I confess that even though it logically makes sense, something about the law rubs me the wrong way. What do you think?

    (Then again, a lot of Germans think it is unfathomable that the government doesn't officially know where you live (here you have to register your home address).)
