When Prop Bets Go Bad – New Zealander gets a Name Change

When Prop Bets Go Bad – New Zealander gets a Name Change

Tuesday, 11 March 2014

Making drunken wagers at the poker table can be a recipe for trouble as one unlucky player from New Zealand can testify.

The unnamed 22-year-old is now known as “Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova”, a name chosen by his poker playing opponents.

"He just found out it was actually accepted last week when his passport expired,” said one of his so-called poker buddies. “He has to wait three years to fix it."

The newly monikered man from Dunedin will also have to alter his driving licence as well as all other official documentation.

“Mr Frostnova” will be in good company in the Antipodean wacky name stakes. According to the New Zealand Herald, a girl in 2008 with the name Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii was taken into care so that her name could be changed.

Another family named their child Superman. It could have been worse for the poor 'Clark Kent junior' as the original plan was to name him '4 Real Superman' but the authorities objected to the use of a number in the name.

Other names vetoed included Anal, V8, 89, Mafia No Fear, Lucifer, full stop and *.
