What's in a name (apart from a touch of lunacy)?

You're not going to believe this. Well, maybe you will once you know it happened in the good ol' US of A.

A man has changed his name to – wait for it – In God We Trust (the former pair of words as his first name, the latter pair as his surname). According to the Chicago Times, as quoted here by the Religious News Blog, this 57-year-old artist and bus driver was ecstatic when the court ruled he could change his name officially. In fact, the entire process took less than two minutes.

Mr We Trust said, "I feel great."

Well, as long as it's adults who do this kind of thing and don't inflict mad monikers on their kids, who are we to complain? He paid for the name change, after all. His former name was Steve Kreuscher, but he thinks In God We Trust represents more closely his devotion to an invisible being. Well, he said God.
