A New Zealand couple from Chesterfield, Derbyshire have won the battle to name their four-month-old son Lucifer.
The couple won the case to name their son Lucifer after a registrar tried stopping them.
The name Lucifer is use as a name for the Devil.
Dan lodged a complaint over the way he and his wife were treated after visiting the council office for the registration.
We were really excited to go and get him registered but the woman looked at us in utter disgust.
She told us he would never be able to get a job, and that teachers wouldn’t want to teach him.
I tried to explain that we are not religious people, and Lucifer in Greek means ‘light-bringer’ and ‘morning’ but she wouldn’t listen.
She even told us that it was illegal to name a child that in New Zealand and that maybe we could name him something else but refer to him as Lucifer at home.
The officials asked the couple to leave the room after they insisted on naming their son “Lucifer”.
The official checked if she could register the boy with the Satanic title.
We were gobsmacked with her behaviour.
Eventually she did it, but it was through gritted teeth.
Honestly, we just thought it was a nice name . . . a unique one. We didn’t expect to get so much grief about it.
