Why Should A Government Body Have the Right to Tell You What You Can't Name Your Child?

First of all, I'm not even convinced that people should be having children. That said, if you do have children, shouldn't you be able to name them whatever the hell you want? Not according to the totalitarian government of New Zealand, apparently (if the linked article is to be believed). Best part:

"A spokesman for the Department of Internal Affairs, which operates the registry told the Herald discussions with the Wheatons about their son's name were continuing."

I guess it's nice that they're negotiating, but just wait until those parents have to deal with DC Comics/Time Warner.
