Kirsten Drysdale Was Surprised After Her Son’s Strange Name Was Approved
Kirsten decided to test the waters by proposing a really strange name for her third child, and she was surprised when it was approved. She recently welcomed her third child with her husband Chris.
She listed the name of her kid as “Methamphetamine Rules” on the New South Wales Births, Deaths, and Marriages registry. “We assumed the most ridiculous name we could come up with would be turned down, so we decided we were going to submit it regardless,” she said. Unfortunately, Methamphetamine Rules managed to slip between the cracks, so it didn’t work out that way.
However, the representative stated that the original name would not be dropped. Drysdale said she had mixed feelings about choosing between “Methamphetamine Rules” and “Nangs Rule,” referring to the Australian slang term for nitrous oxide canisters used to get a fleeting high.
She decided not to choose Nangs Rule though, in case the registrar didn’t know what Nangs meant. Drysdale stated that she had at one point believed that the registry would pick a name for her if Methamphetamine Rules or Nangs Rule, was rejected.
However, according to the state government’s website outlining the laws, if a baby’s name cannot be registered and parents do not suggest an alternative, the registrar can give the child a name.
The guidelines state that the registrar will not authorize a name if it is insensitive or not in the public interest. The registrar will also not affirm given names that contain more than 50 characters, symbols, or titles that are officially recognized or ranked such as princess, Queen, or goddess.
