Couple Win Legal Battle To Name Their Son Lucifer

A bold and controversial choice for their baby’s name initially faced rejection, but a couple has triumphed in the battle to embrace it.


Selecting the perfect name for their newborn is a significant undertaking for parents, and it becomes even more challenging when there’s disagreement over the chosen name.


Imagine that the registrar objected to your desired name and it was judged to be “banned.” Dan and Mandy Sheldon, who live in Derbyshire, were put in this difficult situation because they were allegedly told that giving their baby the contentious name would endanger his future possibilities.

The baby’s name, Lucifer, is associated with the Devil and carries negative and infernal overtones.


Dan and Mandy struggled to choose a name for their son because they don’t practice any religion and instead looked for a powerful and appealing name.
