US Judge Changes Baby’s Name From Messiah to Martin
“The word Messiah is a title and it’s a title that has only been earned by one person and that one person is Jesus Christ,” the judge added.
The baby’s mother Jaleesa Martin told WBIR she would appeal against the judge’s order.
“I didn’t think a judge could change my baby’s name because of her religious beliefs,” she said.
She said she chose the name not because of its religious connotations, but because she liked how it sounded with her two other children’s names, Micah and Mason.
