UK Couple Win Battle To Name Son Lucifer

A New Zealand couple from Chesterfield, Derbyshire have won the battle to name their four-month-old son “Lucifer” after a registrar tried stopping them from choosing the name.

Dan Sheldon had lodged a complaint over the way he and his wife were treated after visiting the council office for the registration.

A spokesperson for Derbyshire County Council said the registrar had done the right thing by raising her concerns about the couple’s choice of name before allowing it.

Lucifer is the name of the devil in early editions of the Bible.

“I tried to explain that we are not religious people, and Lucifer in Greek means ‘light-bringer’ and ‘morning’ but she wouldn’t listen,” said Sheldon.

Sheldon said the court registrar told them the name was banned in New Zealand, and reportedly suggested the pair could name their son something else, “but refer to him as Lucifer at home”. 

“We were gobsmacked with her behaviour,” he added. 

“Eventually she did it, but it was through gritted teeth.

“Honestly, we just thought it was a nice name… a unique one. We didn’t expect to get so much grief about it.”

According to The Sun, the Derbyshire County Council issued an apology to the family for causing offence, but added: “it is the job of our registrars to advise in these matters”.
