    Default I really don't have a good title for this...

    Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a baby, 4Real!

    WELLINGTON (Reuters) - A New Zealand couple is looking to call their newborn son Superman -- but only because their chosen name of 4Real has been rejected by the government registry.

    Pat and Sheena Wheaton say they will get around the decision by the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages by officially naming their son Superman but referring to him as 4Real, the New Zealand Herald newspaper has reported.

    The Wheatons decided on the name after seeing the baby for the first time in an ultrasound scan and realising their baby was "for real".

    They decided 4Real was the best way to write it, but the name was rejected because the registrar said a name had to be a sequence of characters.

    Pat Wheaton said he was considering appealing against the decision through the courts, but whatever happens he won't be budged on his choice.

    "No matter what its going to stay 4Real," Wheaton told the Herald, "I'm certainly not a quitter".

    A spokesman for the Department of Internal Affairs, which operates the registry told the Herald discussions with the Wheatons about their son's name were continuing.

    The baby is now two months old, after the Wheatons first applied to register his name in later June.



    These people probably shouldn't be reproducing.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    As retarded as those parents are being, I have to think that as a child, it'd be a lot more fun growing up as Superman than 4real.

    They should have seen if "FoShizzle" would have been acceptable.

    And here comes the Orangejello and Lemonjello comments.

    FYI ... my friend's mom is the clerk of court in Newport News, once had a pair of brothers -- from Halifax, VA -- with those names. My buddy Mike Newbern coached them in high school.

    Don't get me started on Lemonjello.

    Anyway, this kind of story makes me think people should have to take some kind of test before they are allowed to have kids.
