Spanish parents win battle to name their newborn son 'Wolf'

After a very public campaign, a couple from Madrid have been told they can name their son 'Lobo'.

Ignacio and Maria have won the battle to name their son, who was born on July 12th, Lobo – meaning wolf – after collecting nearly 25,000 signatures supporting them.

The couple had made their fight public after officials initially refused to allow them to register their son with the chosen name, initially because “it was offensive to the child” and then under the rules that it was only to be used as a surname.

 The issue has made headlines in Spain and sparked debate over parents’ rights to name their child whatever they like. Full story...
