If you fancy naming your baby Lucifer and happen to live in New Zealand then you are out of luck. It has recently been added to a list of banned names after three sets of parents wanted to use it for their child. The country has rejected over 100 names over the last two years in a bid to stop people using increasingly bizarre names. Other names on the list include Messiah, 89, C and Baron, Bishop, Duke, General, Judge, Justice, King, Knight and Mr, the last of which have been deemed too similar to titles. Some names that have been allowed, however, include Benson and Hedges and Number 16 Bus Shelter.
