Born Tomorrow and already rocking heavy metal.
A New Zealand mom has turned her kids into little rock and rollers by naming them Slayer, Pantera and Metallica, documentary filmmaker David Farrier reported this week in his newsletter, Webworms.
Additionally, Metallica’s middle name is End Justice for All, a song from the band’s fourth studio album.
“Proud to share that a New Zealand mother has named her children Metallica, Pantera and Slayer,” wrote Farrier. “He told me, ‘It’s not easy lifting the three heaviest bands.’ “
Farrier — whose credits include making the Netflix series “Dark Tourist” — doesn’t identify the mother, but to verify her head-mounted claim, she asked for the children’s birth certificates.
“I reached out to the registrar general myself, asking if there were any restrictions on naming children after the band’s name or album,” wrote Farrier. New Zealand’s Registrar General Jeff Montgomery responded with some reservations not.
According to music publication Results, Montgomery replied, “There is no restriction on naming children after a band or album, unless the term used is generally considered offensive or resembles an official rank or title. is.”
While Farrier doesn’t offer a name for the mom, she did post a photo of her doing one of her favorite things.
“I think it’s important to note (as you can see in the photo in my article) that this mom is also a big fan of the crossbow that’s actually metal too and she’s going for it (and raising three kids). ) deserves our full and complete respect. , Farrier tweeted.
Unfortunately, research has found that giving weird nicknames to your children may hinder their chances of ascending to political office. It can also limit their employment opportunities and social possibilities.
On the bright side, it can garner markedly positive media attention, being more memorable for friends and coworkers as well as high-quality nicknames.
