Quoting Curious2078:

Well, I think any parents who want to name their kid Messiah are just plain nuts.  But for a judge to rule it illegal is going to darn far.  If parents want to name their kid some awful name that will give the kid trauma throughout his/her growing up life--and probably beyond that--that's the parents' choice.  And no judge has a right to rule against it.  The best, the most a judge should do, is pray for the poor kid who has to suffer growing up with this name.



I agree Pat - Funny thing is the mother is appealing. That appeal hearing will be interesting to say the least. The trial judge did try to explain that it would make the child's life hell particularly in his local community that is predominantly Christian. Why can't the mother just come to her senses and pick a regular name? I guess this is her 15 minutes of fame at the expense of an innocent child! I don't much like the Judge's suggestion of Martin (one of the numerous names the Mother presented) either because of the meaning of the name. I guess it's going to swing one way or the other as this is a rather grey area of the law subject to interpretation as the courts deem fit. I do not think the matter of name or right to name your child is specifically covered under the Parental Responsibility law or the Children's Act. I guess the appeal judges will decided based on what they feel is a sensible way to proceed. But if they do not want this fiasco to continue they could just refuse her permission to appeal hearing (which preceeds and determines if there will be an appeal hearing at all) because I would imagine that the trial judge would have denied her permission to appeal application which is normally given orally just after the judgement has been pronounced.

 

In Germany, it is illegal to name your child Adolf Hitler or Hitler. but Adolf is acceptable. That is written into law and pretty much black and white, but Messiah isn't, LOL...so it's gonna be a judgement call mostly unless there is some obscure US law that I am not aware of.

Quoting Good2BTheKing:

I read this and wondered what the judge would do if some Mexican-American parents name their son Jesus.


GoodKing - I actually thought exactly the same thing because there are quite a lot of Jesus amongst the Hispanics.

 

I guess we just have to watch and see how the appeal unfolds. The judge's reason was actually not based on any enacted law, so the appeal may succeed. But you never know, it all depends on whom the appeals trial judges would be and what their proclivities are. Appeal Judges don't usually like overturning rulings from lower courts but we'll see.

 

It is so funny though.
