An American couple from Georgia demanded the state government to allow them to give their daughter the name of Allah. About it reports The Telegraph.
“Let’s just say we have our own understanding of how to name the child. We don’t want to go into details: they are unimportant. It is important what the law says and what our parental rights,” said Bilal, Walk, the father of the child. According to him, the name Allah is noble.
A lawsuit in state court on their behalf filed a human rights organization American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Parents, Valk and his wife Elizabeth handy — demanded that the daughter’s name was Saliha Fertile Lorrain Allah (ZalyKha Graceful Lorraina Allah). The authorities denied: state law, the child’s name should be inherited from one parent, or be a combination of parental names.
In the ACLU explained that the prohibition to determine the name of the child — abuse of the right of the state, so they will get permission.
