ABC says a two-year-old Tucson, Arizona boy is stuck with the name “Baby Boy” because his mother took too long to name him. The hospital used “Baby Boy” as a placeholder so the birth certificate could be filed for state records.
Baby Boy’s mother, Laela Olague, says she doesn’t want to pay the $500 fee required to change his name. “We wanted to name our son based on what’s at or near his zenith at the hour of his birth and what’s in space when he’s born. I made calls to vital records every few months through my pregnancy to make sure there’s no new legalities that would cause the situation that has happened. I’m paying $500 to name my son and other people don’t have to do that and it’s not right. Because I didn’t name him at one-year-old, he’s now legally named after his birth record. No one told me this would happen after I asked so many times.”
Laela wants to change Baby Boy’s name to Perseus.
