Columbian Couple Can’t Use Baby Name Beliza in Spain

Lina and Newar, a Colombian couple living in Spain, wanted to name their daughter Beliza after one of the child’s great-grandmothers.

But the Civil Registry of Spain wouldn’t allow them to register the name. The officials complained that the name didn’t exist, it didn’t go with either gender, and it contained a Z. (Even though Belisa, a variant of the name, has been used in literature by two of Spain’s great writers: Lope de Vega and Federico Garci­a Lorca.)

What do you think about governments having the right to approve baby names? Is the Spanish government taking things too far in this case?
