Swedish Court finds Q isn’t an acceptable name
A Swedish Court has ruled that the letter Q isn’t an acceptable name, after a local couple tried to change the name of their son.
The parents of a boy argued they’d been calling their son Q since he was born, that their son responds to the name and that no matter what official records say, everyone knows him as Q, local press reported.
The parents told the court that since this is what they consider his name is, and what the boy considers his name to be, he should be allowed to use Q as his legal name.
The court however called bollocks, finding that the name “failed to satisfy basic linguistic requirements.” It did however note that some letters may be acceptable, but only if those letters are already commonly accepted as a name, where as Q apparently isn’t.
