New Zealand bans weird baby names
Sorry, new parents in New Zealand, but weird baby names such as Lucifer, Duke, Messiah and 89 are not allowed.

--------

Celebrities with a penchant for weird baby names (looking at you, David and Victoria Beckham) should avoid having kids in New Zealand.

The countrys Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages has been cracking down on parents who get too creative when naming their kids, Australias Herald Sun reports.

The list of weird names for kids that are banned by New Zealands names registrar has grown to include Lucifer, Duke, Messiah and 89.

Also not approved: Bishop, Baron, General, Judge, King, Knight and Mr., names that were all said to be too similar to titles.

The letters, C, D, I and T were also rejected as first names, the Herald Sun says.
