6-year-old asks Norwegian King's permission to be named Sonic X

Six-year-old Christer was fed up with his name and sent a letter to Norway's King requesting his name to be changed to Sonic X.

There's a couple of things to explain before we continue with this bizarre story. Firstly, Christer wasn't asking the King to change his name to Sonic X, though King Sonic X has a certain ring to it. Secondly, we're not sure why Christer wanted the 'X' addition, since this was the simply title of the Japanese animé adaptation. Nevertheless...

Late last year Christer from Norway wrote a letter addressed to Norwegian King Harald V asking for his name to be officially changed to Sonic X, Norwegian newspaper and website dagbladet.no reports.

However, his parents were reluctant to send the letter. That is until months later Christer asked why they'd yet to post his heart felt request. The letter was sent and amazingly King Harald V replied.

Sadly, the King could not change Christer's name, but not because the change would result in a child running around with a ridiculous video game character's title. No, the request was rejected for the sole reason that at six-years-old, Christer was not old enough to make such a decision. Thus, the boy must contact King Harald V in twelve years time once he's turned 18.

Christer admitted that he was disappointed, explaining that "it was a bit bad."



Any child with such a cartoonish name should get smacked in the back of the head everyday.

But hey, no worries. The kid did not go away empty handed.


[UPDATE] SEGA has let us know that they've contacted the Norwegian newspaper so they can send some Sonic X goodies to Christer, perhaps to ease his woes. Bless.

Right, because everyone contacts the king when they want a name change... <_<

Our king got actually little to no power. All he really does is represent Norway and sign some papers.

It would've been awesome if he could change it, just to see what he would think about it 10 years later.

If he gets freebies for being rejected the right to change his name to Sonic X, what would you get if you changed your name to Hentai XXX?

LOL Get it? It's a joke =o=

funny.... it's a good thing the king didn't accept the request. i bet that when he gets older, he'll probably regret changing his name to Sonic X. The Sonic X phase will pass...

I would totally have been his friend had his name been changed.

But seeing as it was not, he's still just a noob.

Haha, I feel a little sorry for this kid. He had his hopes so high, but got turned down by the king himself. At least he got some goodies from SEGA to cheer himup ^_^
