9. Because it issues birth certificates
They can't stop the parents calling them "King" at home, but an official name does have to go through an office.

There are sometimes good reasons for it:

One little girl was so traumatised by her name, Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii, that she had it legally changed at age nine.

"Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116, pronounced Albin" would have been pretty traumatic too.
