There are thousands of names around the world to name your child, but a mother from New Zealand named her three children… well, Slayer, Metallica and Pantera.
New Zealand journalist David Farrier reported:
“Proud to report that a New Zealand mother has named her children Metallica, Pantera and Slayer. She told me, ‘It’s not easy raising three of the heaviest bands.'”
“I become a bit suspicious when she also included Metallica’s best album ‘…And Justice for All’ in her kid’s name too, but New Zealand’s registrar-general seems to confirm it’s a real thing.”
“I reached out to the Registrar-General himself, asking if there are any restrictions naming babies after band names or albums.
“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…
“I think it’s important to note this mother is also a big fan of crossbows, which are also truly metal, and she deserves our complete and utter respect for this (and for raising three kids).”
