New Research: Naming a Baby "Messiah" is Fine with Most Americans
In the summer of 2013, you may recall hearing about a story out of East Tennessee regarding a couple that named their baby "Messiah."
Jaleesa Martin and the father of her child appeared in court in August to settle which last name the baby boy would bear as the parents were at odds about the issue. Upon attempting to settle the conflict in a Tennessee court, Judge Lu Ann Ballew ruled that the baby should be named, "Martin DeShawn McCollough," as it encompasses the names of both the mother and father, and, "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," Judge Ballew said.
