Italy's top court of appeals has barred a couple from naming their son "Friday," castigating them for the "ridiculous" name and forcing them to call the boy Gregorio instead.

The court agreed with two previous ruling from courts in Genoa which found that the name -- Venerdi in Italian -- was too reminiscent of Robinson Crusoe's servant named Friday.

The judges found that Robinson's sidekick in the Daniel Defoe novel was associated with "subjection and inferiority."

The child's parents, who have battled in court for two years for the right to name their son what they want, insisted they chose Venerdi because "it was nice and sounded good" and not because of the novel.

"We will continue calling him Venerdi," his mother told the newspaper Corriere della Sera. "In fact, there was no problem when he was baptised."

Italian law forbids giving to children names that are "ridiculous or can embarass."

The top court of appeals decided to name the child Gregorio because it is the saint of the boy's birthday, September 3.

^ That needs to be done in America and England. I'm tired of seeing all these stupid attention seeking names which celebrities use and it's spreading amongst the general public too.

Finally, someone's done something about these stupid names! Just a bummer it's not happening other places too.
