    Not feeling disrespected. But I like our law that protects children from extreme names like commercial names like Coca-Cola/McDonalds/Microsoft or profanities.

    And personally I feel the name is not right for a first name, as a second name I do not have an issue with it. But again, that is my personal opinion.

    Even if you think that, her reason for doing it is offensive. She made it a religious issue.

    Messiah is not an suitable name for a child.

    I agree with you, religion should have been kept out of this court case.

    I think she should be removed

    It's very similar in Germany. But I still think this judge was wrong according to American law, and because she made it a matter of defending her religious beliefs.

    In America, some Neo Nazi guy named his son Adolf Hitler.

    A lot of times the name will be allowed but for example a Dutch motivational speaker who is famous for his loud screaming of TSJAKKA wanted to call his daughter Tsjakkalotte and that was refused by the judge. Also the name Marieke Methadon was refused. Insulting combinations are sometimes also refused. A combination that would spell N.A.Z.I. can be refused. For example, if you call your child Nicholas Anthony Zacharias Isaac Johnson, spelled in short N.A.Z.I. Johnson than that would be refused by the civil servant and the judge.

    UN convention on the rights of the child. The US may not have ratified it but has signed it.



    This judge decided to take the child's best interest as her guideline. As said, another judge might change that decision but until then I do not see how this harms this child if it is called Martin for a short time in his life. There are worse things that can happen.


    No, not at all----she did it on religious grounds and not the child,s best interest....

    In Germany and the Netherlands that would have been forbidden, not because we do not love freedom but because we respect the memory of the more than 100,000 Dutch Jews that were massacred by that madman.

    And that is wrong, there is a separation between church and state for just these kinds of reasons.
