An Interlocking Block Moniker

A couple in Sweden will be allowed to name their son "Lego."

Couples have previously run into trouble with the names Ikea, Veranda, Metallica and the use of Elvis for a girl.

The Swedish Administrative Court of Appeals overruled an earlier decision to stop them naming their child after the brightly coloured plastic building blocks. [Link]


I thought Japan was the only country that had laws about unusual names. Are there a lot of others?


I know that Portugal and Iceland also have such laws.
