New Zealand Says “No” To Couple’s Choice For Newborn Son’s Name

baby.jpg 4real. Yes, for real. Pat and Sheena Wheaton named their son “4real.” Only one problem – in New Zealand all children must be registered with the government within two months of their birth. When the Wheaton’s registered 4real, it was rejected because names beginning with numbers are against the rules! But wait – the government is in negotiations with the Wheatons. Said Registrar-General Brian Clarke:

The name has not at this stage been rejected. We are currently in discussions with the parents … to clarify the situation.

Should negotiations fail, 4real Wheaton will go in the books as “Real Wheaton.” For real. (You can read more about this here.)
