Registering your Baby
Your child's name is the first and most enduring gift that you give him or her. By law in Queensland, as in other states of Australia, all births are required to be registered with Births, Deaths and Marriages.

Both the child's first name(s) and surname are a matter of choice for the parents. However the Registrar-General may refuse to register a name which is obscene, offensive, too long or 'contrary to public interest'.
