What are they thinking - - -

(CNN) -- A New Zealand judge has made a 9-year-old girl a ward of the court so that her name can be changed from Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii, the country's national news agency reported Thursday.

Family Court Judge Rob Murfitt listed a series of unusual names that New Zealand parents had given their children, and said he was concerned that such strange monikers would create hurdles for them as they grew up.

I read that news story also.
Thank goodness my son and daughter in law and my daughter and son in law had the good sense to name the grandsons with names that were not ridiculous.
That poor little girl.

I read that articule too, amazing how parents think, I'm so glad I choose family/ bibical names for my children, though some family names got by passed by, didn't want my children teased growing up~ sort of remains me of that Johnny cash song " A boy named Sue".
