Couple Want to Name Baby 4Real, but Call Him Superman Instead
Pat and Sheena Wheaton, a couple from New Zealand, wanted to name their baby 4Real, but the government registry said they couldn't because it included a digit, are going to call him Superman instead. They are disappointed however and will still call their son 4Real as a nickname.
Mr. Wheaton came up with the name when they saw their son for the first time on the ultrasound scan and realized their baby was 'for real'.
"No matter what, its going to stay 4Real," Mr Wheaton told the New Zealand Herald newspaper, "I'm certainly not a quitter".
He said criticism of the couple posted on the internet regarding their choice of name had been difficult to handle.
"I did go online and Google some of the stories and as tough as I am, it does get to you, but there's no point getting upset," he said.
"It could be a 10-year-old school girl making those comments."
Some other odd baby names include:
Audio Science (son of Shannyn Sossaman)
Daisy Boo (daughter of Jamie Oliver)
Jermajesty (son of Jermaine Jackson)
