Oops I am not trolling, this thread is not againts the mylot guidelines, I promise. I am sure that title caught your attention but its related to this news I will share. In Sweden, parents where fined by the Swedish Court because they decided to name their son Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116, I know it doesnt make sense but yeah this couple must be crazy to name their son that way, according to the boy's parents, His name is pronounced as Alvin.... yeah I know my obession of the day are discussions about Monikers/names. source of the news: http://boingboing.net/2008/02/20/swedish-couple-fined.html Do think the Sweddish Court did the right decision about punishing these parents? How would you feel if your parents named you Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116? How the heck Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116 is pronounced as Alvin. Should the Court allow his parents to give him such name?

I THINK THEY JUST WANT ATTENTION....IT'S NOT FUNNY. Don't they think about their child's future? I mean writing a very long and forgettable name......being bullied...

There is nothing wrong with exotic names but for sure they went way too far. I plan giving my future kids some exotic names as well but it wont be as crazy as this one.

On the other hand there are kids who are bullied because of their last name.

That sounds more like a random-generated username than an actual name of a person! I wonder what the parents were thinking to name their child that. They may have thought of it as a joke but the child will probably undergo a lot of ridicule and teasing as he grows up. Sure the parents have a right to name their child whatever they wish but I think this is going too far!

Its beyond going far, I dont even think an average child can handle memorizing such spelling and he have to explain its pronunciation cos people will get heavily curious the moment they met him.

Yes I suppose so. I don't think there's even enough space on most forms to accomodate such a long first name.

Just when I thought this is awful, a couple decided to name their daughter Sexfruit. Poor girl... Then there is a couple named their son Bus shelter number 16.

Hiya captain Reading this discussion I started to wonder if they (parents) had just read your earlier discussion on naming planets and thought to abide by the rules for naming planets... But then the link dates back to Feb 20 2008 - so you cannot be blamed in anyway! How about this link here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116#Protest_names That makes this name was in fact given as protest against the naming laws of Sweden. Poor Kid.

And this child was born in 1991. The article dating 2008, feb 20 was a repost of this Wiki Page

That boy might be an adult by now, I wonder if he can spell his name with flying colors or he decided to go with alvin since its how is name is meant to be pronounced. I remember in my country there is a case in my country where a dad's request for his daughter is rejected by my country's census because he named her something that can fill a paper back to back. Reciting his daughter's name is like saying a prayer.

Oh men! I wish my parents were as cool as them. I'd like to see the look on my teachers face when they see that name in the record book, and then I'd like to see it more after I say, "Ma'am/Sir, it's pronounced Alvin."

can you imagine if your parents named you pronounced as Choybel and spelled as #hjfssffdefrgthyjyjvgffghthhgrgthgtg. Just imagine that name fitting inside your ID.

It would have been fun but then again, on a more serious side, it would make my life difficult in the long run with all the legal papers and documents.

if my parents ever did that to me, I will research and seek legal change and remedy as soon as I am able. As much as I love my parents, I think they are not the ones who gonna be the suffering end of jokes, ridicule and all other unpleasant effects of being named this way. Technically, it will be me and God knows it will be worse when in high school. the need for being unique (like giving a unique name) is useless if it doesn’t help the one being named.

I think as long as his classmate wont see the spelling of his name, he wont be ridiculed, I still dont get though how the hell its pronounced as Alvin. I think these are more acceptable way of spelling "alvin" in a unique name: Elvin Albin Alvene Albeen Aelvin Ahlvin Owlvin

hi CaptAlbertWhisker I think a bird named coo coo sounds like what he wrong with these Sw dish parents. Why on earth not just call him Alvin.Kids will not taunt him with that, just imagine trying to write down all that crap as your first name..I think the courts should make it Alvin and stop the silliness.

I found out that this is actually old news, so it makes me wonder if he goes by Alvin now or he is still reffered as Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116. There is a guy here who have twins as sons, 1 is named Jesus and other is Named Satan. I think's Satan's name is rejected by census.
