Teen's Name Changed After Years of Mockery

http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/07/07/D8IN55G00.html

Quote:
After nearly two decades of ridicule, a father has agreed to change his son's name from "Fined Six Thousand and Five Hundred" _ the amount he was forced to pay in local currency for ignoring Vietnam's two- child policy.

Angry he was being fined for having a fifth child, Mai Xuan Can named his son Mai Phat Sau Nghin Ruoi after the amount he was forced to pay _ 6,500 dong (50 cents), said Dai Cuong village chief Nguyen Huy Thuong.

Sometimes you have to wonder what drug the parents were on when they named their child.

That's hilarious. At least the kid will have a cool "fun fact" to tell about himself for the rest of his life.
