Legislative change on the table by group of Taiwanese who changed their name to “Salmon”

Taiwan’s parliament is debating a law that states that a citizen may not change his or her name more than three times. By law, a number of people with the name “Salmon” were suspended. They changed their name to promote sushi.

Under Taiwanese law, residents of the country are not allowed to change their name more than three times.
