New Zealand Poker Player Lost Drunken Bet, Let Friends Rename Him

New Zealand Poker Player Lost Drunken Bet, Let Friends Rename Him
By Paul O'Hara Updated

It has emerged that a 22-year old New Zealand poker player officially lost his birth name as a result of a drunken bet with his mates. The country's legal code allows for names of up to 100 characters, and this unfortunate has been saddled with a 99-character appellation.

The name change was registered in 2010, but it was only when the guy went to renew his expired passport that he realised that he is now officially known as

Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova.

Even though New Zealand's strict naming regulations have prevented parents from adopting non-approved monikers such as  Anal, V8, 89, Mafia No Fear, Lucifer, ., and *, Frostnova's name was given the green light and will appear on his driver's license and other legal documents.

Frostnova, from Dunedin, can change his name again at any time by completing the necessary form and paying a fee of NZ$127 (€77.40).

In 2008, a judge ordered that a girl named Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii should be taken into court custody so she could be renamed.

According to the Telegraph, names are permitted unless they would "cause offence to a reasonable person, are unreasonably long, include numbers or symbols, or without adequate justification include or resemble an official title or rank".
