via Amsterdam mayor wants to drop Moroccan name list < Local News | Expatica The Netherlands.

It is funny that the Dutch registration authorities did this with the Moroccan list, because as we registered our daughters birth in the Netherlands we were told that her name was not valid but because we were English that it would be allowed.

Our crime? we used a surname as a middle name.
