Name Your Baby Boy Gregorio, Not Venerdi, Says Italian Court

Italy’s top court of appeals has upheld a ruling that prevents a Genoan couple from naming their son Venerdi (the Italian word for Friday).

The judges claimed the name was reminiscent of the Robinson Crusoe character Man Friday, who is “characterized by his role of subjection and inferiority.” The judges went on to say that such names are of “a ridiculous nature” and make their bearers “susceptible to irony and scorn.”

In arguing for the right to use Venerdi as a name, the couple cited soccer player Francesco Totti, whose daughter is named Chanel, and Fiat industrialist John Elkann, whose son is named Oceano (Italian for, you guessed it, Ocean).

The boy will now be known as Gregorio, in honor of the saint on whose feast day he was born.

Here’s an earlier post about Venerdi/Gregorio.
