If he chooses to adopt a name which simply subjects himself to contempt, ridicule, and inconvenience, he has a common law and statutory right to do so.
Meanwhile, as we have indicated, the appellant is at liberty to enjoy his common law right to the use of numerals as his name, as long as he is willing to endure the inconvenience which is attendant on asserting that right
