You can name the baby anything you want. If possible, though, both parents should agree on the name.
Naming a Baby
If the parents cannot agree on the baby’s name and end up fighting in court, a judge will decide what name is best for the baby.
You can fill out the court forms online at www.courts.ca.gov/selfhelp.htm. You can also visit this site for any questions or concerns you may have about the court forms.
You can also get the court forms from your local court clerk’s office.
