Italian Court Renames Child

It doesn't actually say in the article how the the highest court in Italy came to pronounce judgement on the name and rename the child from Venerdi (Friday) to Georgio (his saint's day name). There must be an awful lot of children out there with ridiculous names who have been the brunt of far too much mirth and mockery who would be grateful of a process whereby other adults could apply to have them renamed. Once you are grown up and you know the issues , you can call yourself what you want and Friday isn't that bad really, but the ruling makes an interesting point.
