What's wrong with calling your child Ned Kelly?

In Australia, there are some rules around what you decide to name your baby. We published a list of names that are banned in Australia, some included Medicare, Panties, Lucifer and Batman.

 

Robert Kelly: Nothing wrong with Ned Kelly, I know a couple of Jessie James but that's not banned.....how unaustralian is that

 

Tyarna Ferguson: Ned Kelly is an odd ban though?

 

Linda Schenckel: I heard a mother talking to her little daughters one was called Fire. At first she yelled at her "FIRE!" and that got my attention. Later I heard her tell her other child to go and play with Fire.

 

Alex Manning: That's bulls**t. I really wanted to name my next child bonghead

 

Cindy Bellini-Hogarth: Samantha Alexander looks like you will have to find another name - pieandsauce is not very popular

 

Palma Smyth : List is not long enough. It should include stupid spellings of normal names, and giving girls boy's names and vice versa

 

Nicola Waterreus: What's wrong with Batman?

 

Tracey Loweke: Worst name I've seen is Reefer
