When Australian journalist Kirsten Drysdale gave birth to her third child in July, she decided to use the opportunity to put her country's naming restrictions to the test.
Curious to see if any names would be rejected, the journalist for Australia's ABC decided to submit her son's given first and middle names as "Methamphetamine Rules" to New South Wales Births, Deaths, and Marriages, The Guardian reported.
According to NSW Births, Deaths, and Marriages rules, a baby name will not be approved if it is offensive, too long, includes numbers and symbols, or could be confused with a title or rank such as colonel, saint, queen, or prince.
Drysdale told the outlet that she and her husband wanted to "submit the most outrageous name we could think of, assuming it would be rejected."
"We chose methamphetamine thinking there's no way that anyone will see that word and think it's OK," Drysdale said, per The Guardian. "But we were wrong."
The name was unexpectedly approved.
