Tennessee Judge Orders Infant´s Name Must Be Changed From "Messiah"


District Judge Lu Ann Ballew said the name of a seven-month-old boy has to be changed from Messiah DeShawn Martin to Martin DeShawn.

"The word Messiah is a title and it´s a title that has only been earned by one person and that one person is Jesus Christ," Ballew argued. The mother, Jaleesa Martin, said she was shocked by the judge´s decision and would appeal against the ruling.

The boy´s parents were in court because they could not agree on the child´s last name, but when the judge heard the boy´s first name, she ordered it to be changed.
