New Zealand: Parents Pat and Sheena Wheaton have indicated that they will attempt to name their son 'Superman' if they fail in their attempt to overturn the registrar of births, deaths and marriages' rejection of the name '4real.'
The name was chosen as a reaction to an untrasound [SN reported]. The law stipulates that names cannot begin with a number, but the Wheatons argue that if a name can end with a number (eg. John William II), they should be able to start with a number.
The law also suggests that parents avoid names that could result in their child being tormented. Previously, New Zealand officials have prevented parents from using names such as 'Adolf Hitler' and 'Satan.'
