DUNEDIN, New Zealand, March 10 (UPI) -- After losing a bet to his friends, a 22-year-old New Zealand man had to legally change his name to arguably the most ridiculous name in history.

The 22-year-old lost a drunken poker bet 5 years ago, which gave his so-called friends the opportunity to get him to legally change his name to "Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova."

Frostnova found out that last week the New Zealand Ministry of Social Development accepted the name change. Frostnova will have to change his name on all of his legal documents and identification including his passport and driver's license.

What makes this story so much more absurd is that New Zealand has an odd naming policy and has rejected submitted name for children like Majesty, King, Knight, Princess, Justice, Anal, V8, 89, Mafia No Fear, Lucifer, full stop and *.
