The Kerala High Court exercised jurisdiction over the girl’s parents to choose her name. The bench said, we are helpless, efforts to resolve the dispute between the parents will take time and in the meantime, due to the absence of a name, the child will be deprived of all facilities.

While choosing the name, the court considered factors such as the child’s welfare, cultural considerations, parents’ interests and social norms. Ultimately the objective is the well-being of the child.

After which the mother went to the registrar office where she asked to write the name ‘Punya Nair’ in the birth certificate of the child. But the registrar refused to register the name and said that the presence of both the parents is necessary. Since the parents were separated. They failed to reach an opinion on the issue, as the father wanted to name the child ‘Padma Nair’.

Court’s decision – father’s name added to girl’s name
After considering all the aspects, the court said that the mother, with whom the child is living. The name given by her should be given importance but also said that the father’s name should also be included as the society is patriarchal.

Ultimately, to end the disputes between the two parties, the court named the girl ‘Punya’ and also ordered to include the father’s name. The court ruled, ‘Balagangadharan should also be added to the name Nair.’
