Offbeat: poor Talula

Judge Rob Murfitt

Judge Rob Murfitt of the New Zealand Family Court has ordered that a 9 year old girl, who was so embarrassed about the name that her parents gave as “Talula does the hula from Hawaii” that she preferred to be called “K”, become a ward of the state. That way her name could be changed to something more suitable.

Names registry staff blocked included: Fish and Chips, Yeah Detroit, Stallion, Twisty Poi, Keenan Got Lucy and Sex Fruit.

Names Registry staff allowed were:Number 16 Bus Shelter, Midnight Chardonnay, and Violence- all of which might seem to be related to the circumstances of conception.

Another mother who used text language to name her child O.crnia was allowed to change the name to Oceania.
