That's like an american news report i saw a little while ago (we get fed a lot of american news outside of the US) that alerted me to the existence of
the name "nevaeh" (something backwards).
Why would you name your kid that? Oh, you're so clever! said nobody, ever. It's obnoxious to have parents like this. It's all fun and games for now,
but wait until they're older. How will that name have context?
Besides, according to common religious logic, wouldn't having "heaven" backwards represent the contrary of "heaven". I don't know, it just seems to me
like it's the inverse of the message they are trying to give.
This completely justifies iceland's extreme views on name registry. Sure, it doesn't give much choice. But do you blame them? At least they have
something to stop people from naming their children "wall" or "park bench" or "@hotmail.com" or "#(Insert something stupid here)"
EDIT: Oh, where was my contribution? My first name was named by my father after Daniel from the bible. He was religious at the time, hence the choice.
Funnily enough, i was never baptised and he's since not practiced religion, and i've never referenced it to anything biblical or religious, so my name
has never meant to me what it meant to my father.
As for my middle name, it was named after his best friend
