Dad names newborn "Sarah McCain Palin Ciptak" without telling mom - they'd previously agreed to Ava Grace Ciptak

http://www.smh.com.au/news/world/ive-ca ... 68379.html

I've heard many cases where the father recorded a different name than what was previously agreed to and that became the kids legal name.

Why is the father given the right to choose the name without the mothers consent? Unless its the case of a single parent (in which case it should be the mom who is the only one present) then both parents signatures should be obtained before the baby is legally named

And just think what this child is going to have deal with for the rest of her life, if mcain-palin get elected and some scandal happens with one of them, particularly Sarahl.

Don't think that's likely - how would you feel if your name was William Jefferson Clinton Smith?

The same reason that the mom is given the right to abort a child without the father's consent - it's nobody else's business.

I distinctly remember both of us having to sign the certificates on which our children were legally named, given that we were both available to sign.

But that may not be the case everywhere.

Naming a child is not a paternal right.
