Choosing a baby name for your little one can be a tough decision to make.

But sometimes a proposed moniker can be completely off the mark.

In 2017 names like Justyce-Krimson, Ida-Qween and Royaale were all turned down by the New Zealand’s Registrar-General. Even the name made popular by Kim Kardashian's son, Saint was also rejected.

However it obvious to see why some of these shocking suggestions were denied, unusual names like ‘.’ or ‘/’ would make life a tricky for any youngster.

According to New Zealand’s Department of Internal Affairs a name “must not cause offence to a reasonable person, be unreasonably long, or include or resemble an official title or rank.”

So if you’re thinking up baby names this year make sure to stay clear of these ones.
