Government starts changing weird or long names!
Posted 11/30/08 , edited 11/30/08
The government keps telling my family that my name is too long and parts might be removed. Marie-Claire Michelle Edith Marie-Antionette and my last name is my Mom and Dads last names put together. In total its 53 letters. I can understand why they would want to remove some of my middle names but they are planning to make it illegal to have both your Father and Mothers last name yours! The government cannot remove half my last name without my consent!

so... should the government be able to control our names?

No. At least not to such an extent.

lol! you have an awesome name, but honestly if I ever saw that name on an I.D I would think it's fake.
Maybe that's why he wants to change it? For hoax reasons?

That's ridiculous, the government should not be allowed to do that. I believe that the government should only be allowed to make naming children really dumb names illegal.

i don't think that government has the right to change peoples' names just because they might be long or "weird."

53 letters? So weak!

Glastonbury teen has 'longest name'

Captain Fantastic Faster Than Superman Spiderman Batman Wolverine Hulk And The Flash = 73 letters

Marie-Claire Michelle Edith Marie-Antionette + last name = 53 letters

~~~

Theres a person with a LEGAL name that is longer than yours and the Government didn't do anything about it

they are doing it cause where i live its kinda a tradition to put together the parents last name for the child....
so some people have last names like..
smith-joe-macdonald-etc-etc-etc
it gets kinda crazy after a bit....

I think that 4 names in your whole name is just enough.
No more. ha, its also hard for people to remember!
Though I think your name seems fine, no oddly put together name like
superheros-pilot-addanamehere.

Though i think the dude that changed his name to that superhero thing
is just plain ridiculous, he just did it to get into the newspapers. >.>
Imagine trying to write it on a job application -_-

There's nothing wrong with having a long name. but the government can't do that, it's not right.
