As an atheist, I find not being able to call my kid Lucifer as censorship it only applies to the sensitiveness of Christians. I don't mind the names Justice or King thinking of MLK of course. I don't see the difference between first and last names really. I take more expectation to names spelt wrong on purpose say Crystal with a K etc.... or Chloe with a K. So yer censorship for me ill name my kid Lucifer Kane If I want.....

I'm not too happy with them either. What right do they have to tell me what I can name my child?

I suppose the government is thinking of the possible troubles some names could cause.

Lucifer is kind of a cool name to me. :p

What's the issue with the name Lucifer? "Morning star" (or some variation thereof) sounds quite nice to me.

I guess next they'll have to limit nicknames?

Lucifer is a nice name? why the hell not? they said they have to make sure the names are not offensive to a reasonable person? ... and something tells me they are basing the ban on a religious purpose ?? how are those people then reasonable lol
