A New Zealand man has changed his name to “Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova” after losing a drunken bet at a poker game. The change was the result of a lost poker bet and the man realised his drunken consequences only when his passport expired. The name met legal criteria and the applicant had paid the fee and completed the form correctly and it was aproved!
Under Birth Deaths and Marriages rules, new names must consist of one surname, and one or more other names, unless religious, philosophical beliefs or cultural traditions require the applicant to have only one name – in which case the applicant is required to provide a letter of explanation.
Names may not be accepted if they cause offence to a reasonable person, are unreasonably long (more than 100 characters), or without adequate justification include or resemble an official title or rank.
