      They could still name him Blackbird after their favorite SR-71.

        Hahaha and with all the Apple’s and other unique celeb names they’ll fit right in

      The article did give an answer to something I was wondering about.

      Some countries go further and have lists of acceptable traditional names that must be adhered to.

        wow, that's really fascinating. I instantly visualized a drop-down or multiple choice menu and had a good chuckle over that. That's a neat cultural thing though, all jokes aside.

      This whole thing is interesting. Will the system and culture update or will they be forced to adhere to current laws/guidelines surrounding this issue?

      some bills to allow diacritical marks, but those bills have failed to become law, reportedly due to the how much it would cost to update the state’s computer systems

      so it's possible, just tedious and expensive? it can sound silly. it is silly. but new things and novel ways are usually silly in the beginning.

      Kind of a silly article, but it does raise some really interesting issues with parental naming rights. Larson's paper is a 43 page PDF but there's got to be some good articles out there on the subject that are more accessible.
