That is, a name can be legal (accepted by the civil law to be registered) and not be legitimate because it doesn't conform to the language rules, spelling, for instance. In the same way, a name can be illegal even being completely legit.
In the USA all the names can be legal, but not all of them are legitimate. The legitimacy or not doesn't depend on civil tribunals or laws, but on linguistic rules.
