Should governments be able to regulate names?

New Zealand made some waves this week when it divulged a list of names it has banned since 2001. It barred names like "Messiah" and "Lucifer," along with even stranger appellations like "Mafia No Fear." Do you agree with the New Zealand government's ability to regulate the names of its people, or should naming children be given the same protection as free speech in the US?
