Naming woes 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 ...

The couple officially later registered the name Dako, but will call their son WikiLeaks regardless.
