Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby, Saint West, has been breaking hearts with the news of his arrival this week, and it turns out the little guy breaks laws in New Zealand too.

E! News (via InStyle) reported that it’s not only unacceptable but also illegal to name someone “Saint” in New Zealand, and, according to the NZ Herald, the name would have been rejected by the Department of International Affairs.

Other blacklisted names include Messiah, Christ, Bishop and Lucifer as, like Saint, they imply a title, rank or make a religious reference, and “royal” names like Justice, King, Prince, Honour, Royal, Duke, Bishop, Major or Majesty were banned by NZ Government between 2001 and 2015. In addition, 89, Mafia No Fear and Anal have also been turned down recently, for obvious reasons.

Oh well, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, right? Meanwhile, artists are actually imagining what baby Saint West is destined to look like, so let that break your hearts and not your laws, NZ.


#SaintWest will have Kim Kardashian West’s eyes and Kanye West’s nose.
