Family Not Allowed To Name Child '4real'

WELLINGTON, New Zealand -- If your name is 4 real, everybody knows what it means. That's the reason why a New Zealand couple want to name their son "4real," with four being a numeral.

However, New Zealand's Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages doesn't want to grant the request, on the grounds that numerals are not allowed.

Pat and Sheena Wheaton said they decided on the name after they glimpsed their son for the first time during an ultrasound examination and were struck by the reality of his impending arrival.

The dad said most people have to look up the meaning of their names in baby books, but "with this name, everyone knows what it means."
