When to NOT normalize?

I wanted to ask in what conditions we should not normalize?

For example:
1. If the character < 80 + other table is not using that column/attribute

Post( title, content, language-flag)

Should I normalize the language-flag?

Customer(ID, FirstName , LastName, Brithday)
I know Firstname and LastName would not be normalized but why, because maybe there are two-person called John as well?
