The local magazine has an article on this and here are some our Dept of Internal Affairs has allowed
Fish and Chips (twins)
Cinderella Beauty Blossom
Number 16 Bus Shelter
Tallula Does the Hula from Hawaii
According to this article
, Yeah Detroit and Fish and Chips, were specifically disallowed by registration officials, along with such horrors as Sex Fruit. Talula was taken into court guardianship under a judge's order so that she could change her name, because it caused her extreme embarrassment and harassment from other children. The judge is quoted as saying in his ruling,
"The court is profoundly concerned about the very poor judgment that this child's parents have shown in choosing this name. It makes a fool of the child and sets her up with a social disability and handicap, unnecessarily."
I don't necessarily agree with countries that have an approved list of names and disallow all others, but New Zealand's regulations that permit registration officials to disallow names that would expose the child to ridicule make sense. I'm fairly certain that if Talula's parents had stopped with "Talula" and dropped off the nonsensical rest of the name that no one would ever have batted an eye.
