    Messiah is not an suitable name for a child.
    You live in the Netherlands I see. This means you have NO concept of self sovereignty. If you did you would be saying the same thing the Americans are mostly saying, the judge is full of crap.

    I'm curious what the two parents put into the motion to have the judge decide on the last name. If they were too vague, they could have given the judge the ability to "decide on the name" of the child.

    At the same time, its not like they named their kid Adolf Hitler or Aryan Nation. Do that, and they just take your kids away.

    Why not? What's wrong with Messiah? Plenty of Spanish men are called Jesus. Plenty of Italians are called Santo (meaning Saint). Plenty of Spanish women are called Immaculada Concepcion (Immacualte Conception). Heck, plenty of Spanish women are called Mercedes, like the car. I don't see what the probem is with Messiah as a boy's name.

    I bet the judge just loves it when a Hispanic named Jesus appears before him

    You know the car was named after a woman called Mercedes, don't you?

    So should we have the judge change a kids name from "Peter" to something else? I mean he might get bullied or ridiculed by being called "Dick" another name for your peter. Sorry, but kids bully and tease REGARDLESS of the name, so this is a lame excuse for a judge to get involved in the naming of a kid.

    The judge is a freaking moron. I thought this kind of idiocy only happened in Europe. Government's duty to protect children from parental abuse does not include forbidding harmless first names, ferkrissakes.

    Yes, smartypants I do know that. That is not the point. In many non-spanish speaking countries the name Mercedes is associated with a car, not a person.
