Drunken bet results in 99-character name-change: "Full Metal Havok..."

Nat writes, "A Dunedin, NZ, man lost a bet five years ago and changed his name by deed poll to the longest name he could make (99 characters, 1 shy of the Dept of Internal Affairs limit). I want to know what they were drinking because the name is fantastic. "The 22-year-old man from Normanby is now legally known as 'Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova'." (Thanks, Nat!)

  1. however "full metal havok" would make an awesome FMA sidestory. or possibly an odd yaoi pairing...

  2. In other news, New Zealand's identity authorities don't mind what name is on your documentation as long as it's under 100 characters long. Which is a welcome sight.

    Wasn't there a story a few years ago about a mischevious father who put some php or mysql code in for a child's middle name on some school paperwork and crashed or erased the school's database?

  4. I'm surprised, because this name has been in my family for generations. I wonder if he could be a lost cousin?
