A New Zealand couple have finally won a legal battle to name their son attributed to a demonic angel known as” Lucifer”.
The Couple known as Dan and Mandy Sheldon tried to register their four-month-old son’s name at their local council office in Derbyshire last week, which had reopened to the public after being shut due to COVID-19 .
But they were dismayed when a council official told them they could not use the name, with Mr Sheldon lodging an official complaint over their treatment.

He told The Sun the council employee had said their son “wouldn’t succeed in life” with the name Lucifer, the name given to the devil when he is an angel before his fall from grace, according to Christianity.
“We were really excited to go and get him registered but the woman looked at us in utter disgust,” Mr Sheldon said.
“I tried to explain that we are not religious people, and Lucifer in Greek means ‘light-bringer’ and ‘morning’ but she wouldn’t listen.”
However, The UK official eventually agreed to let the Sheldons name their son Lucifer.
