MOSCOW, October 20. /TASS/. The State Duma (lower house of parliament) Committee for Children and Family on Thursday supported a bill, which would ban Russian parents from officially giving their children names consisting of numbers, abbreviations or obscene words.
Russia's current legislation does not prohibit giving names that violate the children’s interests or rights.
Committee head Tamara Pletneva said she supported the bill since "a newborn baby cannot choose a name himself."
Among the strangest names given by Muscovites to their children since 1998 are Dolphin, Nikolai-Nikita-Nil, Summerset Ocean, Princess Daniela, Sophia the Little Sun and by far the most outrageous one is BOChrVF260602 (which translates to "biological human object of the Voronin-Frolov family born on June 26, 2002").
BOChrVF260602, who is already 14, still has no ID papers since the Moscow registration office refused to register such an outlandish name, and subsequently a court upheld this ban.
