Pity this man

In the rugged Telemark district of Norway lives a man who has a little trouble with his name. Aftenposten has this rather charming story.
An Iraqi refugee now living in Norway's mountainous Telemark district has applied to change his name to Dastanse Rasol Hussein. His current name, Saddam Hussein, is far too troublesome.
So good people of Telemark, be nice to him, its not his fault.
