    In the US, for example, if you have a treatable form of cancer and parents refuse chemotherapy, the state will take over and mandate the treatment. This has happened multiple times. Appropriately so. Certain cancers are essentially 100% fatal without treatment, and survival rates are approaching 90% with treatment. It's clear case (IMO) of the state looking out for the minor's health, the same way as if the state would intervene if the child was being physically abused or not being given any food or water. If you're an adult - do whatever you want but children are not their parents property - they are guardians, not owners.

    In other examples, even if the parents are Jehova's Witnesses and refuse all blood product, but the child will die without a blood transfusion - the physicians are ethically obligated (and perhaps legally so) to treat the baby or the child regardless of parental beliefs.

    A number of people say your name defines you. In that case, you have a point. I'm wary of calling it abuse though your example is a label that has made you more difficult to refer to than is fair.

    On the other hand. According to naming rules in Victoria, that particular name falls very close to being banned, so maybe you are right.

    My only thought on naming is that parents should consider only those names which travel well across a large portion of the globe.

    To point out the obvious, Harsh is not one of those names

    I didn't even realise that is a real name. I think it's awesome. You'd be an awesome manager. My boss is Harsh!

    You'd limit names too much if they had to work in all languages. I was told my name means fart in some arabic dialects.

    Harsh is a great name in English.
