Believe it or not but a 22-year-old man from Normanby, New Zealand, 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 in a poker game 5 years ago.
The name is 99 characters long - just 1 letter shy of Department of Internal Affairs' (DIA) 100 character limit. According to DIA's Births Deaths and Marriages spokesman Michael Mead, the change of name was registered in March 2010 and it met the requirements of naming rules and the applicant paid the fee and completed all necessary paperwork. A department spokesman said ‘Mr Frostnova' could apply to change his name again by filling out a few documents and paying the $127 fee. The application-process then takes about eight days to complete, according to Michael Mead.
Names that have been turned down in the past by New Zealand's Department of Internal Affairs: Majesty, King, Knight, Princess, Anal, V8, Mafia No Fear, Full Stop, 4Real Superman, Lucifer and *.
