But what if his name is legitimately:

        Ri3ck Lahrson

Yes.  That was his name for many years.

I can't see a rule that would accept Rick and reject yours.

I *still* don't see why you care.

If I come up to you and say "my name is" and then whistle three tones,
you would be disrespectful to deny me that naming.

Just accept what's in there, and deal with it.
