Government: Your name ‘not feminine enough’

ICELAND – Imagine having the government tell you that you need to change your name because it isn’t feminine enough.

A 15-year-old girl had to take the government to court to get the right to keep her name.

“Blaer” is considered a boys name, and the Icelandic government was so against a girl having a boys name that they refused to print it on her ID cards.

She sued, and yesterday a district court ruled that the name “Blaer” can now be used for both boys and girls in the country.
