Rejected Baby Names in Victoria, Australia

We know what Victoria’s most popular baby names were last year, but what about the names that got rejected?

The Australian state gave a thumbs down to the following in 2013:

  • Anarchy
  • Fireman Sam (a Welsh cartoon character)
  • Honest Mary
  • Glory Hallelujah New Covernant (sic)
  • Lord
  • Prince
  • Princess
  • Princess Diana
  • Tit
  • Wonderful Beautiful

Among the odd-but-approved baby names? Jazz, Pepper, Reef and Texan.

(Tit reminds me of Atit, which is a one-hit wonder on the U.S. list.)
