Baby Name Can Determine Parent Worthiness

When a child is born, some parents name them after a beloved ancestor or family member, some parents name them with the hope that they become someone special, and some parents just play around.

A court in New Zealand decided to deprive a couple of parenthood after deciding that the daughter’s name “Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii” was unreasonable.

At age nine, the court removed the parent’s choice of name as the reason that the girl lied to people, according to the girl’s lawyer,  telling them her name “K” because she was afraid if they heard her real name she would be teased.

The family court judge who decided to remove parental rights stated, “The court is profoundly concerned about the very poor judgment, the name made the child a fool, and this child’s parents have shown in choosing this name. The name of her parents made her up with a social disability and handicap, unnecessarily,” and added on a note, that the child had better insight on the matter than her parents who didn’t think about what a name like that might do to their daughter.

The girl with a new name and a new home and the new name has been sealed.
