Should the most popular name in the world, Muhammad, not be allowed too?
I actually disagree with the parents naming their child something so blatantly religious without family precedence (i.e. the kids grandfather was named it or something) as the child should IMO choose their religious affiliation when they are old enough to make a sensible decision. This said there is a precedence that is at least 100 million people strong spanning numerous generations, of people giving their children biblical names (heck, my name is Jacob) and choosing their children's religion for them (as it more or less was for me) so I can HARDLY see how an official could actually use that reasoning. She didn't use this reasoning anyhow. She used her own religion as reasoning.
