    Judge: He's Not The Messiah!

    A judge in Tennessee changed a 7-month-old boy's name to Martin from Messiah, saying the religious name was earned by one person and "that one person is Jesus Christ."Child Support Magistrate Lu Ann Ballew ordered the name change last week, according to WBIR-TV (http://on.wbir.com/1cDOeTY). The boy's parents were in court because they could not agree on the child's last name, but when the judge heard the boy's first name, she ordered it changed, too.
    "It could put him at odds with a lot of people and at this point he has had no choice in what his name is," Ballew said.
    It was the first time she ordered a first name change, the judge said.
    Messiah was No. 4 among the fastest-rising baby names in 2012, according to the Social Security Administration's annual list of popular baby names.
    The judge in eastern Tennessee said the baby was to be named Martin DeShawn McCullough, which includes both parents' last name.
    The boy's mother, Jaleesa Martin, of Newport, said she will appeal. She says Messiah is unique and she liked how it sounded alongside the boy's two siblings Micah and Mason.
    "Everybody believes what they want so I think I should be able to name my child what I want to name him, not someone else," Martin said.

    Ridiculous. I wonder if they will start banning the name "Freedom" soon to match everything else going on in the country...

    The way in see it is if the Hispanic cultures can name their kids Jesus, why can't someone name their kid Messiah. I would be suing if it were me.

    You should be able to name your kid whatever the hell you want if this is a free country. We shouldn't have the government controlling what names are acceptable for our children.

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    Very true. I was just giving an example. Like I said, I would be suing the state if it were me. That judge had no right to do that just because it goes against his beliefs.
