New parents name their child Honour of Kings after Tencent's hugely popular mobile MOBA

A child born in August 2017 in the Shaanxi province of China has reportedly been named after Tencent's hugely popular mobile MOBA Honour of Kings.

As reported by the The, via the South China Morning Post, an identity registration card claimed that the child's name was, in fact, Honour of Kings. This was later confirmed by the public security bureau of Shaanxi’s provincial capital Xi’an.

The official who confirmed the child's name also stated that if the parents are happy to name their child Honour of Kings, there is nothing the police can do to intervene.


Should the parents follow Tencent's pattern, the child could go through a number of name changes before they're happy. Other options include Penta Storm, Strike of Kings, and Arena of Valor.

Thanks to fans like Honour of King's parents, the game helped Tencent's revenues hit $8.56 billion in its last financials. It has now secured over 200 million downloads worldwide.

Honour of Kings is slowly making its way into the West, starting with a launch in Europe under the name Arena of Valor. It is currently unknown when the game will hit the US.
