NZ 15/01/2019

Rogue, Royale-Bubz and Jusdyce. These are all on the Department of Internal Affairs' list of the most-rejected baby names in 2018.

The list, released on Monday, includes gang slang, religious figures and multiple attempts at misspelled royal titles.

The man in charge of the list is urging parents to be sensible when deciding what moniker to bestow upon their infant.

"You'll need to rethink swear words, names of more than 70 characters, numerals or anything unpronounceable, like a backslash or a punctuation mark," says Jeff Montgomery, Registrar-General of Births, Deaths and Marriages.

In total, 64 names were rejected, up from 43 in 2017.
