New Zealand Man Gets His Name Changed to Full Metal Havok…And That’s Just the First Name
Don’t get drunk and drive, they say? I say, don’t get drunk and bet. Don’t take my word? Well, it might cost you your name and fame (if you had established any). There’s one gentleman who leads by example in this regard and here’s what this helped him accomplish:
So you want to listen to a story?
Here it goes then.
Five years ago, a drunk New Zealand guy (who shall remain unnamed) lost a bet in a game of poker with his friends. As per the agreed terms of the bet, the 22 year-old has to change his name with one his friends came up. They submitted the required form for a name change. Apparently, all that’s required in New Zealand for a change of names is the submission of a form. Uncanny.
So, Mr. Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova, who posted about his experience on a bodybuilding forum member says:
“OP got letter 2 weeks after name changed but figured if he ignored it instead of changing it back it will be ok”
For the last five years, Mr. Full Metal Havoc, or GhostOTnavigator, has been using his original name but as soon as his passport expired in February, the government of New Zealand sent a confirmation letter to notify him of the name change coming into full effect. Countless calls to the government with the plea of changing the name back were in vain as the government informed him that he could only do so after 3 years.
Imagine signing documents with a name like that. Good luck Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova. You da man!

DIA Births Deaths and Marriages spokesman Michael Mead said the change of name was registered in March 2010.
The name met the requirements of naming rules and the applicant paid the fee and completed the form correctly, he said.
Mr Frostnova could change his name again any time by completing the form correctly and paying the $127 fee, Mr Mead said. The process takes around eight days.
Under Birth Deaths and Marriages rules, new names must consist of one surname, and one or more other names, unless religious, philosophical beliefs or cultural traditions require the applicant to have only one name – in which case the applicant is required to provide a letter of explanation.
