The Federation Council approved a ban on ridiculous and weird names for kids
The Federation Council approved a law prohibiting naming children names, using swear words, numerals and titles, reports TASS.
According to the document, prohibits “the use in the name of numbers, alphanumeric symbols, numerals, symbols and non-letters characters (except for the character “hyphen”), or any combination”.
However, it provided an opportunity for the parents to give the child a hyphenated surname. If the parents have different surnames according to their agreement, the child can obtain the father’s name, mother’s surname or a hyphenated surname, formed by the joining of the surnames of the father and mother to each other in any sequence,
At present, a double surname may be formed only in the marriage: spouses can combine their names in General.
