In my country there are regulations on what you can name your children. For instance, when a Turkish family wanted to name their son Musa, it was not allowed, because the name would be too burdensome for the child. Why? Because even thought the name is Turkish, in my country "musa" means "the mouse".
I dont think it's bad thing that too weird names and names that will likely make the child a target are forbidden. If it was something an adult decided to make their official name, that would be another matter entirely, they're adult and can make that decision for themselves. But a child shouldn't be made to endure sucha thing.

Around here the nicknames can get even weirder.

But those are just nicknames, not someone's official name. That's a pretty big difference

My wife works for a local school and says she has met kids named Demon, OrangeJello, Sir Patrik Kilyjhia and Last. Not an exhaustive list but these are the ones I can remember at this time.

/\Lol a couple of the names on my list are former Oakies.
Maybe those were their given names and not a nickname.

Poor kids, they would get pick on in school. Parents never think about what their kids name would do when they start school, kids can be bully in school or worse commit suicide.

Will the sixth be named Dethklok?
