Couple sues Tennessee over right to choose child’s last name

A Brentwood couple is suing the state of Tennessee for the right to choose the surname for their newborn son.

Kim Sarubbi and her husband Carl Abramson named their child Camden Sabr. The last name Sabr is shared by their two older children and is a combination of letters from both of the parents’ last names.

“We had a lot of fun creating the name,” Sarubbi said.

The two older children were born in other states where there was no objection to the newly created surname.

But the state of Tennessee won’t allow the name Sabr on the baby’s birth certificate.
