What's in a name?
For most parents, naming your baby is a joyous moment. Out of hundreds of thousands of names to choose from, parents usually choose a name with meaning. There’s a lot of thought that goes into naming your child. So just imagine going through all of that to give your child the perfect name only to have it rejected by your country’s government.
That’s what happened when Cizinho Afreeka and Jéssica Juliana attempted to register the name of their newborn baby girl in Brazil. In Brazil, babies have to be entered into a civil registry so that the government can keep track of the next generations. The country is known for rejecting names they feel don’t fit into what they consider “traditional.”
What would you do if THIS happened to you?
