    Not sure what your nationality is but I've seen this in lots of Indian family's. Many Many Ku-mar's & San-she's but thats not their birth name but more of an adopted nicname.

    I've probably already posted this before, but I used to work at an indoor playcentre and once hosted a party for a little boy named King. I actually thought it was pretty cool though!

    I thought that kids in Australia couldn't have royal names like king, duke, princess, etc.?

    Don't think that'd true as there are 2 kids in my childrens daycare who are named princess and duchess.

    Default Horrible baby names

    On the birth, deaths and marriages webpage (for VIC), it says you can't use titles as first names. Hubby wanted to call our son, Baron Von *surname*, and I pointed out that bit to him
