I am willing to bet that most of those illegal naming attempts were actually acts of defiance towards the government; activism via naming your baby something that pisses the government off.

He said the large amount of Coca-Cola she drank likely led to metabolic imbalances that gave rise to her heart problems, adding that Coke was likely a "substantial factor" in her death. A New Zealand food industry association on Wednesday rejected a coroner's call to add health warnings to soft-drink labels.

Strippers would wear license with their real name and number

http://www.star-telegram.com

Rep. Bill Zedler has filed a bill to require employees at sexually oriented businesses to get a license and display it while working. The conservative lawmaker said he hopes the measure, if it passes, might encourage women to find another line of work. "They won't want to get a license as a stripper from the state of Texas," Zedler said of his legislation. "I think it would keep a lot of girls from getting involved in that lifestyle and basically wrecking their lives. "This will force everyone to clean up their act," he said. "Overall, it will be a benefit to everyone concerned."
