The child formerly known as Talula

July 24, 2008

A judge in New Zealand has made a 9-year-old girl a ward of the court so that the embarrassing name her parents gave her — “Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii” — can be changed:

In his ruling, Murfitt cited a list of the unfortunate names.

Registration officials blocked some names, including Fish and Chips, Yeah Detroit, Keenan Got Lucy and Sex Fruit, he said. But others were allowed, including Number 16 Bus Shelter “and tragically, Violence,” he said.

No word on what Talula etc.’s new name is, but I do know thatĀ happens to be available if the judge is a music fan.
