<b>Naming woes</b> A couple have had their hopes of naming their son WikiLeaks dashed after their local registry office, in Bavaria, Germany, turned the name down. Hajar Hamalaw, a journalist, said the name has "big meaning", as it is "a synonym with transparent truth", but the registry staff member cited concerns for the baby’s welfare and refused it. "She thought I was presenting the name of a television show,” he said. "We were very disappointed ... Hundreds of people across the globe were allowed to use the name of Barack Obama’s dog [Bo] for their child, but I can’t use WikiLeaks?" The couple officially later registered the name Dako, but will call their son WikiLeaks regardless.
