An Israeli man has asked to officially change his name to that of several British monarchs.

The man, from a central Israeli city, asked the city’s Population and Immigration Authority to change his name to 10 British monarch that he admires: Henry, William, Phillip, Charles, Frederick, Michael, Louis, George, Edward, and Robert, Ynet reported Monday.

The authority told the man he would have to choose three of the names.

“Thousands of people change their names each year in Israel, some of them at the advice of a rabbi and others at the advice of psychics, in addition to those who want Hebrew names, but we’ve never seen such an odd request,” the Population and Immigration Authority explained in a statement given to Ynet.
