Instagram Influencer Gives Her Baby A Name That’s Illegal In Australia!

Instagram Influencer Gives Her Baby A Name That’s Illegal In Australia!

Instagram influencer Claire Alexander-Johnston has revealed that the name she’s  chosen for her baby boy, may in fact be illegal in Australia.

You see, we have laws in place that stop parents from naming their children ridiculous names such as Christ or Captain.

The Byron Bay local shared a pic to Instagram saying she had some legal issues when naming her son Citizen.

“Welcome to the family Citizen Sage Alexander-Johnston,” she wrote on Instagram.

“You are 10 days old… Sorry this naming business has taken so long!

“We had a bit of a curve ball when we announced your name to our family, as someone pointed out, it’s possibly illegal to name you that in Australia.”

Welcome to the family 💙 Citizen Sage Alexander-Johnston. 🌿 You are ten days old. Four delicious kilos already. My favourite child [as long as you never answer me back or disagree with me at all ever 🤪]. You have the colouring of your brother Atlas. The face of your brother Everest [Sochi], and …well nothing of your sister Zephyr right now 😆 but she’s kind of her own person… [and actually the self-titled Boss of You] …you’ll work that out pretty fast, don’t worry, I got you. Sorry this naming business has taken so long! We had a bit of a curveball when we announced your name to our family, as someone pointed out, it’s possibly illegal to name you that in Australia, as it falls loosely under the category of ‘title’ like “King” “Duke” “Lord” or “Captain”. We tried to change it. ‘Disco’ even came back into play! 😆 But nothing else felt right for you as a Libra, with a [very sensible and grounded] Capricorn moon. ⚖️ So Citizen you are, and always will be- a Citizen of the world. And amazing Sage 🌿- burning, cleansing, and healing. And in Ancient Greece- a wise man [but you know, no pressure 🤪]. And look, if you have some rough teenage years, and you just wanna hang in the garage punching bongs with “Benji and the crew”, you can always roll out “Zen” as a nickname, and I’ll bring you all snacks and we’ll get through it. Because I’m already so proud, and so in love with you Citizen Sage. You complete me. Welcome to the family, we’re so glad you’re here. ❤️ #citizensage

Claire went on to say that the name Citizen falls under the category of “title” like “King”, “Duke”, “Lord” or “Captain”.’

“We tried to change it. ‘Disco’ even came back into play! But nothing else felt right for you as a Libra, with a [very sensible and grounded] Capricorn moon,” she said.

“So Citizen you are, and always will be – a Citizen of the world.

“And look, if you have some rough teenage years, and you just wanna hang in the garage punching bongs with ‘Benji and the crew’, you can always roll out “Zen” as a nickname, and I’ll bring you all snacks and we’ll get through it.

“Because I’m already so proud, and so in love with you Citizen Sage. You complete me.”

Claire is no stranger to giving her offspring unique names. Her eldest three children are called Atlas, Everest and Zephyr.

So just in case you had any thoughts on giving your baby an unusual name, here’s a list of what you can’t call them in Australia: Admiral, Anzac, Australia, Baron, Bishop, Brigadier, Brother, Cadet, Captain, Chief, Christ, Commodore, Constable, Corporal, Dame, Duke, Emperor, Father, General, God, Honour, Judge, Justice, King, Lady, Lieutenant, Lord, Madam, Majesty, Major, Messiah, Minister, Mister, Officer, Premier, President, Prime Minister, Prince, Princess, Queen, Saint, Satan, Seaman (hahaha), Sergeant, Sir and Sister.
