A couple from Chesterfield, Derbyshire, New Zealand, have won the battle to name their son ‘Lucifer,’ after a registrar tried stopping them from choosing the name which is often used as a sobriquet for the Devil.
According to TheSun, Dan had lodged a complaint over the way he and his wife were treated after visiting the council office for the registration following its reopening after months of lockdown.

He said he was told of the consequences of naming his child Lucifer, which to him, was a beautiful and unique name. “She told us he would never be able to get a job and that teachers wouldn’t want to teach him.
I tried to explain that we are not religious people, and Lucifer in Greek means ‘light-bringer’ and ‘morning’ but she wouldn’t listen.
She even told us that it was illegal to name a child that in New Zealand and that maybe we could name him something else but refer to him as Lucifer at home.” Following the couple’s behest, their request was granted.
