You know what's great? you name your child whatever you want. Like, literally. you wanna name your kid "book" or "garbage can", go right ahead!
What is even cooler if naming your kid after a band. Yep, an ACTUAL band. You know, the kind that plays music!
Well, a woman in New Zealand did just that when she named her kids Metallica, Slayer, and Pantera...after the legendary metal bands.
According to Blabbermouth:
The news of the unidentified woman's choice of names for her kids was first broken by New Zealand journalist and documentary filmmaker David Farrier(Netflix's"Dark Tourist").
"Proud to report that a New Zealand mother has named her children Metallica,Pantera and Slayer,"Farrier wrote on his Twitter. "She told me, 'It's not easy raising three of the heaviest bands.'"
Farrierwent on to say that he has seen the birth certificates of all three kids and admitted that he was was initially suspicious, especially after noticing that Metallica had a middle name of"And Justice For All", in honor of the band's fourth album.
"I reached out to the Registrar-General himself, asking if there are any restrictions naming babies after band names, or albums,"Farrier wrote. New Zealand Registrar-General Jeff Montgomery answered that "there are no restrictions on naming babies after bands or albums, as long as the word used is not generally considered to be offensive or does not resemble an official rank or title."
