What's in a Name?
The boy's parents named him Friday when he was born 15 months ago because they liked the sound of it. He was registered with the Genoa city hall and baptized.
But several months ago a tribunal ruled that Friday violated a law against ridiculous or shameful names. It said Friday would be the butt of jokes and hindered from developing what it called "serene interpersonal relationships."
The parents appealed — but lost their case earlier this month. They say they will still call him Friday — but when he's older he will have to sign his name Gregory.
