Metalhead Baby Name: Iron Maiden

iron maiden, logo, rock

A baby boy born in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, in early February was named “Iron Maiden” after the British heavy metal band:

iron maiden, baby name

His father was particularly inspired by Iron Maiden’s gruesome, zombie-like mascot Eddie the Head.

Which prompts me to ask the obvious question: Why not just name the baby “Eddie”?

On the other hand, I kinda wish both parents had a “Duran” to contribute to the surname, because then you’d have Iron Maiden Duran Duran.

Some related names and almost-names: Danzig, Metallica, Vedder, Cobain, Reznor, Motor Head.
