Off Topic: Baby Names

Normally, I think courts getting involved in family matters are wrong. In the case of abuse and divorce, I think it is appropriate even if I don't always approve of divorce. A first glance, I would still think that a court getting involved in a child's naming is a gross over step in their powers, but when I saw the names parents were trying to give their children, I changed my mind. I think you will agree with me. In 60's and 70's, there were some very interesting names, and it's probably not a hard leap in logic to think that they were drug inspired. Take River Phoenix for instance. I wonder if he was picked on in school. Maybe I am just used to those kind of names now by exposure and the fact that they have always been there. However these new names I have been reading about are quite shocking. I feel sincerely sorry for these children. How can you name your child "4Real", "Sex Fruit", "Number 16 Bus Shelter", or "Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii"?

This makes me feel even more affirmed in naming my son George. Is this phenomenon limited to New Zealand?
