The downside of unique naming

Earlier this year, I wrote an article extolling the virtues of having a unique name so that you didn't end up confused with somebody on the US No Fly List. However, if you're from Denmark, that might be a problem.

According to this article from the International Herald Tribune, the folks in Denmark are a bit restrictive on the naming of their children. To wit, there are 3,000 boy names and 4,000 girl names that you get to choose from without getting the Ministry of Ecclesiastical Affairs and the Copenhagen University Names Investigation Department involved.
