mind your business

while watching the eurovision on sunday, we came across the name nicosia. i think it was the name of one of the people who were reading the voting result from their home country.

i said to MOH that it’s such a cute and unique name (i don’t think so anymore. i just finished listening to 25 country’s representatives sang, about 5 of them could sing properly. it was like torture, i went a bit hazy). i said to him when we had a daughter, we should call her nicosia. but then, we wouldn’t be able to since nicosia wasn’t not a norwegian name so the government probably wouldn’t let us.

apparently, if you want to give your kid an uncommon name (my interpretation: non-norwegian name) here, you have to write to the government or king or whoever for permission (MOH said, most of the time it’ll be ok. as long as the names won’t make the kid get teased).

what a joke, right? they want to have a say in what i name my own kid? get a life, man… get a life…
