I Am The Person That Is That Name Man Who Changed Name To Jesus Christ, Is “Christ” one of these protected surname by the Finnish state?
A Manhattan man’s holiday spirits soared to celestial heights Friday when a judge gave him permission to change his name to Jesus Christ. Jose Luis Espinal, 42, of Washington Heights, said he was “happy” and “grateful” that the judge approved the change, effective immediately. Espinal said he was moved to seek the name change about a year ago when it dawned on him, “I am the person that is that name.”
[...] She cited a 2001 Utah case in which a man legally changed his name to “Santa Claus” and a Washington, D.C., case earlier this year in which a name change applicant obtained a driver’s license and Social Security card in the name of “Jesus Christ.”
[...] Though laws differ by jurisdiction, the judge said, there seems to be a nationwide consensus that a name cannot be changed to a number. She cited a South Dakota court ruling against a change to “1069? and a California court rejecting “III” as name.
The problem with changing your name to Jesus Christ is that your birthday is now on Christmas! People will combine your birthday present and Christmas present into one “big” present, that really ain’t so big. Jose Luis Espinal will be switching his name back next Christmas, mark my words.
