Guy Named 'God' Has a Problem

If you thought Rainbow Aurora, Lyric Sonny Roads Goldberg, Janice Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele, and whoever made these laws necessary had it bad, consider the plight of God Gazarov. The Russian-born Gazarov was named after his grandfather, and now lives in Brooklyn. But the 26-year-old businessman was recently rejected for an auto loan because the credit reporting agency Equifax simply refuses to track someone named "God," the New York Post reports.

So while Gazarov has sterling credit scores with the other two major credit agencies, Equifax has no information on him whatsoever. "It's extremely frustrating," the not-almighty says. "I worked hard to get good credit to look good to lenders and this happens." He's suing Equifax. (More name stories.)
