Baby Names

Superman is not allowed, neither is Asterix, but Batman and Tarzan are.... Now Swedish MP's are up in arms saying the law should be changed and made consistent. Yes, it's the Baby Name Debate! Swedish MP's in Superman Name Row (BBC On-Line; Wednesday 29th September 2004).

Personally I generally enjoy slightly offbeat names but calling your kid 'Superman' or 'Batman' is pushing sensibilities a bit and probably (re: almost certainly) opens the floodgates for abuse and ridicule at school.

Agreed. Doing something that will directly result in your child being bullied at school is selfish. I'd go as far as to say that it shows lack of caring about the child.

I just noticed that too. I think it's the smartest thing tax men have ever done. :D
