Throw up the tiny devil horns for Iron Maiden Duran Ruiz.
Here’s a pro move every new parent should absolutely consider: naming your baby after one of the world’s most beloved metal bands. Thanks to a couple in Bolivia, Iron Maiden is now taken. Don’t worry, Gorguts is still available. But for how long?
Iron Maiden Duran Ruiz was born in Bolivia on February 2nd, as per this birth certificate posted to Facebook earlier this week:
“Only in Bolivia,” the Facebook post notes. Sounds like a challenge to the rest of the world, if you ask us. We can’t let Bolivians be the only people with a baby named after a seminal metal act! It’s 2017 and the race is on; someone please name their offspring Behemoth, or Slayer, or whatever, and you too could have your child’s birth certificate be posted on a humourous Facebook group for everyone to enjoy. Just try not to let their nursery become a Cradle of Filth, that’s a little too much dedication.
