Swedish couple continue fight for right to name their son Q
A Swedish couple from Ã
re in northern Sweden have taken their fight to name their son Q to the Supreme Administrative Court, reports The Local
The court will rule if current legislation permits the use of a single letter as a first name.
The parents insist that the boy was not named after the popular figure from the James Bond films and that the decision was instead a last minute one when "Q" was born.
They argue that he answers to the name which they have used since birth.
"He is quite simply Q with half of the inhabitants of the Ã
re. There are stranger names in the valley," the couple claim in their appeal of a ruling by the administrative court of appeal (KammarrÃ¤tten).
The Supreme Administrative Court on April 21st granted the couple leave to appeal and will consider whether the 1982 names law allows the use of a single letter as a first name.
The couple write that as an alternative they could consider the use of the name "Q:u".
