What douches.

WELLINGTON (Reuters) - A New Zealand couple is looking to call their newborn son Superman -- but only because their chosen name of 4Real has been rejected by the government registry.


Pat and Sheena Wheaton say they will get around the decision by the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages by officially naming their son Superman but referring to him as 4Real, the New Zealand Herald newspaper has reported.

The Wheatons decided on the name after seeing the baby for the first time in an ultrasound scan and realizing their baby was "for real."

They decided 4Real was the best way to write it, but the name was rejected because the registrar said a name had to be a sequence of characters.

Pat Wheaton said he was considering appealing against the decision through the courts, but whatever happens he won't be budged on his choice.

"No matter what its going to stay 4Real," Wheaton told the Herald, "I'm certainly not a quitter."

A spokesman for the Department of Internal Affairs, which operates the registry told the Herald discussions with the Wheatons about their son's name were continuing.

The baby is now two months old, after the Wheatons first applied to register his name in later June.

They named it the first thing they thought when they found out it was really there?

If everyone did that half the population would be Oh Shit, or Not Mine.

True story: When my dad was assistant principal of a middle school in the south bronx, there was a set of twins whose names were Male & Female. Apparently, the mother came from some backwards spanish speaking country & didn't understand english too well. While they were waiting for someone to come translate for her so they could find out what she wanted to name the kids, the hospital put little cards on their cribs that said Male Espinoza & Female Espinoza. The mother thought that the hospital named the kids and that's what she put on the birth certificates - Male (pronounced mah-lay) and Female (fa-mah-lay).

That reminds me of the polish marriage proposal "you're having a what?"

The name wasn't TAKEN, it was REJECTED

I went to college with a girl named Jeni4. People used to see her name in the campus phone book and would call her up and ask her if that was her real name, then laugh when she said yes.

She seemed surprisingly cool with the constant ridicule, of course someday she'll probably wind up hanging herself.

I've never understood the obsession with caring about what people name their kids.
Like "Apple" or "Sori". Whatever, who gives a shit.

Why is naming your kid after some stupid bible character, or a mythological god or after something that means "Sunshine" in greek or some bullshit... why is that better than naming your kid "Keyboard" or "Mouse" or "Cockbreathe" who gives a fuck.

I'd rather be named "Male" or "Taco" than Bob or Steve.

I actually have a friend named Sterling, and he's actually cool and not a douche.

Best part? His last name is Johnson... His parents were breeding porn stars I guess.
