Norway's King Harald V stepped in recently when a six-year-old boy sought to change his name to "Sonic X."
The boy, whose given name is Christer, wrote to the King with his request. But was Denied.
Sadly, the King could not change Christer's name, but not because the change would result in a child running around with a ridiculous video game character's title. No, the request was rejected for the sole reason that at six-years-old, Christer was not old enough to make such a decision. Thus, the boy must contact King Harald V in twelve years time once he's turned 18.
