Tennessee Judge. You cannot name your child Messiah. Only one person has earned that name.Submitted by go213mph on Sat, 08/17/2013 - 14:31
NEWPORT, TN — The government gets to name your children for you. That’s what one family found out recently in Tennessee.
Child Support Magistrate Lu Ann Ballew has ordered that Jaleesa Martin change her 7-month-old son’s name from “Messiah” to “Martin DeShawn McCullough.”
Regardless of the judge’s reasoning, it is not her call to make (in a free society).
