A woman has found herself at the centre of a global e-maelstrom after it was revealed that she named her son Lucifer.
[See ehn, I trust Nigerian mothers sha. Them go don disown you before you come house from hospital. Plus who do you expect to come and do Omugwo for Lucifer?]
According to Josie King, 27, she was not inspired by the devil when she named her little boy.
The name just popped into her head one day and she liked how unusual it was.
And boom, she gave it her son.
Imagine having to live the rest of your life having to answer to the name Lucifer.
How do you even intend to make heaven?

In her own words: “There wasn’t any inspiration for the name. I’ve looked at many baby books and I like unusual names. I don’t like having the standard names.

“I assumed I was having a girl so I picked a girl’s name because we are a very female dominated family – I was going to call her Narnia but then I found out I was having a boy.”
Speaking further on the matter, Josie said: “I’ve had a lot of hate since being on Jeremy Vine but it still doesn’t change my opinion, I don’t regret choosing that name.
“I’ve had messages all day. I didn’t realise that one impulse phone call to Channel 5 would end up in me having so many.
“I do think people have a right to have an opinion – it’s mostly the older generation that don’t like it.
“I like the name because I like it, I don’t think it stands for the devil, in my eyes.
“If the devil was called something else, you wouldn’t like that name either.
“It’s about people’s mindset with the name.
“I’ve had people ask me why, but I say why not? The name is no different than Sarah or Dom.”
Abeg who get Mummy G.O number? I want to tell her something.
