I guess Frank Zappa would be in real trouble with the daughter "Moon Unit" and son "Dweezle". But, if the State is in charge, they know best. All hail the State.

What a waste of bureaucracy!! Mexico is a "Canary in the Coal mine" for the USA.... This is the product of years of nanny Statism....

One would think that the Mexican government would encourage odd names so that they might charge a fee to change them. Heck, it would be a great experiment to try on our own dumbed-down electorate. Sincerely, Pickles Microsoft Hilton III
