Girl fights for right to her own name

8 posts in this topic

A 15-year-old is suing the Icelandic state for the right to legally use the name given to her by her mother. The problem? Blaer, which means light breeze in Icelandic, is not on a list approved by the government.

Like a handful of other countries, including Germany and Denmark, Iceland has official rules about what a baby can be named

This is one of those laws that should of never happened. Laws can go too far getting involved in your personal business sometimes.

I agree some names are way over the top but at least the kid can change it if they want when they are older.

Some of the names that are approved I wouldn't want for a name.

I dont think any government has the right to dictate what you can or cant name your child.
