″God” Needs First and Middle Name, Judge Says

April 18, 1985

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) _ A judge has decided that a man who wanted to change his name may now be called God - for short.

Enrique Silberg initially asked to change his name to just God but Marin County Superior Court Judge David Menary balked. He said there had to be a first name and preferably a middle name.

Silberg settled on Ubiquitous Perpetuity God.

″I don’t think anyone is going to confuse him with a name like that,″ Menary said Wednesday.
