99 Characters In My Name, You Can Call Me Al

A New Zeleand man has changed his name to the longest legally allowed, after apparently losing a bet.

The 22-year-old man is now legally known as 'Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova' - just one character shy of Department of Internal Affairs' (DIA) 100 character limit.

A message on an online forum, written by someone describing themselves as a friend of the man, said the name change was the result of a lost poker bet.  Mr Frostnova could change his name again any time by completing the form correctly and paying the $127 fee. The process takes around eight days.

Names may not be accepted if they cause offence to a reasonable person, are unreasonably long, or without adequate justification include or resemble an official title or rank.  In 2008, Family Court Judge Rob Murfitt publicly criticised some parents' choice of names, after he ordered that a girl named Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii be taken into court custody so she could change her name.
