    I have to agree with everybody here.. I don't like it. My brother is in the army and I've been involved with many an Anzac day event. Anzac (the acronym) should be held in the upmost regard and respect like the Australia flag and all of our freedom today. By calling someone this, they are bringing disrespect to all the diggers from Australia and new Zealand.. Not happy

    I don't mind it, it's not a name I would personally use but I think there is worse names out there.

    I know a man (60or70-ish) called this and love it as he is all things 'Anzac' and a true caring soul. I am calling this bub Anzac as a nickname because of due date and considering using for middle name but don't think I would use as first name. BD&M will only refuse a name if it is offensive or cruel. Anzac is far from that.

    Not a fan. As a PP said, a bit disrespectful and an acronym is not a name.

    I had to lol at the biscuit comment. We are naming our son Kingston and MIL keeps reminding me that it is the name of my fave biscuit.

    I've got to say I'm not a fan either. I think it's pretty obvious that it would ruffle a few feathers too, so not the best choice for a name really IMO.

    Sorry just a question honestly how would it be disrespectful to all those who do and have served for our country? Wouldn't it be showing the utmost respect by wanting to name your child ANZAC (the most precious thing in you life) surely it would be of great appreciation if someone called their son this. Maybe it's in honor of them?
