A 17-year-old Lost A Drunk Poker Bet And Now His Legal Name Is 99-Characters Long
Five years ago, a drunk 17-year-old lost a bet and registered to have his name changed. Unfortunately for him, his name was registered and went live today.
The 22-year-old is now called "Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova"- a name that his equally drunk friends came up with.
Spock may not approve but a spokesman for the Department of Internal Affairs births, deaths and marriages section, said the name change was registered in March 2010. Frostnova only found out recently when he went to renew his passport.
The name met legal criteria and the applicant had paid the fee of €77 and completed the form "under the rules."
Rules are that the name wouldn't cause offence to a reasonable person, isn't unreasonably long, doesn't include numbers or symbols, or is without adequate justification include or resembles an official title or rank, and is less than or equal to 100-characters long.
He got through ALL of that.
He will now have to change the name on his driving licence and other official documents.
