A couple from the central German city of Kassel wanted to name their son Lucifer!
The registrar refused to put the rather unusual name into the baby’s birth certificate where the case ended up in court. Eventually the mom and dad were convinced to choose differently and the baby is now named Lucian.

Gerry & Dave tried to grapple with this and understand why someone would want to do that.
