The Western Star - - FAMILY LIFE -

PAR­ENTS in Italy have been or­dered to change their daugh­ter’s name af­ter calling her Blu.

A court or­dered Vit­to­ria and her part­ner Luca to sup­ply a tra­di­tional girl’s name for their 18-month-old girl.

If they don’t think of an al­ter­na­tive name the court has threat­ened to im­pose one.

Italy has a pres­i­den­tial de­cree that all chil­dren should have gen­der­spe­cific names.

The par­ents said they are go­ing to fight the or­der.
