Awful name.  Don't do it to your child.

I'm also not a fan of virtue names.  I know a Patience who is the least patient person I have ever met.

I’m on Twitter quite a bit. You would be surprised how many LNP supporters are also Trump admirers.

Yer I get all that.... I was just trying to be light hearted and make a joke, obviously it missed its mark.

It's a relatively new list and obviously put together by a bunch of people that have no clue about naming history.  

It's really not. Using a title as a name in Australia has not been allowed for a long time.

So now I'm reminded of when I worked in bank call centre and a customer called up to have her title changed from "Mrs" to "Baroness."

Computer said no.

My dad’s cousin in law was very upset when people thought his name was Duke and that he was American rather than Duke being his title.

Respectfully disagree. Never ever heard of another person with this name, Trump springs to mind instantly.

I would be in the minority, my first thought was Barron Hilton.

I didn't know trump had a son let alone his name... Have never really paid attention when his name came up to know.

I did know a Justice who is now about 20 years old and was born in Australia.

But maybe spelt differently, cant remember

I once met a Randy who was aptly named. Dammed if you do, dammed if you don't with the virtue names. Steer clear.

Well I thought of this thread this morning as I was driving along one of Sydney's busiest roads and was confronted with a ute - complete with a huge TRUMP logo on it - along with a map of Australia surrounded by German Iron Crosses.

Don't do it OP.  Name your son something else.

Wow, didn't expect this many responses.

This isn't a joke lol.. I made this account  specifically to ask this question. I didn't even know one of Trumps sons was named Baron. The name is inspired by my favourite basketball player Baron Davis and I think the name just sounds cool (my opinion).

Thanks for the few serious replies. And sorry to cause a little stir in this thread haha.

The latest amendments to the Act were made in March 2017, released to the media December 2016.

Titles that had been fine hitherto were no longer.

Really,? I'm sure I remember when looking at names for my eldest (15) that titles were not allowed.

Pretty sure they were in there when I was naming DD1 too, back in 2010.

Specific names were put on the latest list some of which are title names that had gone through previously. There was conversation about it because well people already had some of those names and had never thought anything of it.

Even back in 2005 for me.

I remember back in 1993 a co-worker talking about a friend who wanted to name themselves something which included a title which was banned on that basis.
