So long as the name isn't directly mocking God (such as Delilah, Damien, or Lucifer), I think all the focus on what names are/aren't appropriate for a baby is small potatoes.
How is Damien mocking God? Because it was the name of the main character in a long forgotten movie about the anti-Christ in the 1970s and its sparsely-watched 1990s remake??
Quick, call Rome. The Roman Canon has the name of a fictional anti-Christ character in it. It needs to be purged of it. What were they thinking of? I guess someone in Rome must have liked the movie.
Who could be responsible for this...Could it be....I don't know....SATAN!
