A Censored Girl’s Name? How Timely!

Seeing that Iceland has a list of approved names for boys and girls and that they’ve taken away the name of a 15-year old girl that somehow slipped through their bureaucracy after being baptized with an unapproved name initially, makes me want to name our baby Blaer just on principle!

(Except I have an objection to giving names with alternate spellings that sentence a child to a lifetime of spelling out their name for people – “No, not J-A-C-K-S-O-N.  It’s Jaxon, with an ‘x'”.)

Least surprising detail in a story about Icelandic names?  The mom of the girl with no name is named…Bjork! 😉
