These names were banned from being given to babies in 2016

4Real, V8 & Anal are just 3 of 494 names that were banned from being given to Kiwi babies last year.

The Department of Internal Affairs, who makes the call on baby names, rejects any name that is unreasonably long, offensive or is an official title, a spokesman has said.
