New Zealand, which requires government approval of all baby names before they become official, released a list of the names it has rejected, including “4Real,” “Anal,” and a symbol of a star. What do you think?

“Well, in that case, I’m glad me and my daughter Anal don’t live in New Zealand.”

“But somehow ‘Irene’ is okay. Irene. I-reeeene. God, such a weird name.”

“It’s about time. There are like seven Lucifers in my son’s daycare.”
