US: And they call the wind… Messiah!

August 13, 2013

A judge in the US has ordered a baby’s first name to be changed from Messiah to Martin, arguing that the only true messiah is Jesus Christ, reports say.

The parents of seven-month old Messiah DeShawn Martin had gone to court in Tennessee over his last name.

But Child Support Magistrate Lu Ann Ballew ordered the first name changed too, local broadcaster WBIR-TV said.

Last year more than 700 babies were named Messiah in the US, according to the Social Security Administration.

No, he’s just a very naughty boy

And for someone called ‘Lu Ann’ to criticise other people’s choice of names is a bit rich.
