Offbeat: poor Talula
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.
