A Dunedin man says he regrets his drunken mistake and is
getting rid of his 99-character name.
The 22-year-old from Normanby has been legally known as 'Full
Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The
Superheroes Combined With Frostnova' since losing a bet.
DIA Births Deaths and Marriages spokesman Michael Mead
confirmed yesterday the change of name was registered in
A person claiming to be the man contacted the Otago Daily
Times by email and said he did not wish to reveal his
identity "over a stupid drunken mistake four years ago."
He disputed the details of yesterday's story but
did not elaborate except to say it was him - and not a friend
- who posted the thread on the online bodybuilding forum
which alerted the wider world to his name change.
He has now written to the DIA requesting his name be "fixed
back to the original."
"It's been a week and a half since then, any time now I
should receive a confirmation it has gone through and been
accepted," he wrote, signing the email Stupid Name Guy.
