The girl with no name

FILE - In this Sunday, Dec. 30, 2012 photo from files Blaer Bjarkardottir, left, and her mother, Bjork Eidsdottir, are photographed in front of a pond in Reykjavik. The 15-year-old Icelandic girl has been granted the right to legally use the name given to her by her mother, despite the opposition of authorities. A court ruled Thursday that the name "Blaer" can be used. It means "gentle breeze." The decision overturns an earlier rejection by Icelandic authorities who declared it was not a proper feminine name. Until now, Blaer Bjarkardottir had been identified simply as "Girl" in communications with officials. (AP Photo/Anna Andersen, File)
