North Korean women ordered to change name if same as Kim Jong-uns daughter

North Korea is banning people from having the same name as Kim Jong-un’s daughter.

Though there are few confirmed details about Kim Jong-un's second child, Ju Ae, she is believed to be around 10 years old.

Recent reports by Radio Free Asia claim that the regime is now ordering women and girls, with the same name, to change it.

The publication claims that women from two different cities told that local governments had issued orders telling the women to amend details on their birth certificates.

A report, translated by The Insider, claimed: “Yesterday, the Ministry of Security in Jeongju City summoned women registered with the resident registration department under the name ‘Ju Ae’ to the Ministry of Safety to change their names."

The resident added that the name has been reserved for persons of “the highest dignity” only.

A 12-year-old girl in the same neighbourhood was also forced to change her birth certificate, according to the report.

The mysterious daughter, Kim Ju Ae is one of the leader's only children to have been revealed to the public.

The pre-teen made her first public appearance alongside her father Kim Jong-un last November while they inspected an intercontinental ballistic missile test.

Photos of the youngster being “paraded” by her father sparked theories she was Kim’s favoured successor.

North Korea also described Ju Ae as their leader's “most beloved daughter”.

Should she succeed her father to rule the nation, it would mark the rogue state’s fourth hereditary Supreme Leader after Kim Il-sung founded the controversial country in 1948.

South Korean news outlets previously reported that Kim has three children – born in 2010, 2013 and 2017.
