http://news.yahoo.com/tenn-judge-changes-infants-name-messiah-215423538.html I can see the point in thinking such a name would probably cause problems to the child, not set it apart in any beneficial way. Messiah is indeed a very specific title, given it means the one who intervenes on account of someone (man/mankind) towards someone else (god). I am sure there have been other weird names for babies, i heard of some of them (North West?), but this was a bad choice too and i hope the baby keeps a normal name. You can discuss, if you feel like it, the issue of unusual baby names, if they are detrimental or not, and so on.
