A Mother Names Her Children Metallica, Pantera, And Slayer


According to the recent tweets shared by journalist and documentary filmmaker, David Farrier, a mother from New Zealand gave her three children the names of her favorite metal bands which are Metallica, Slayer, and Pantera.

It has been widely known that there is actually a close relationship between the rock and metal bands and their fans. The fans have sometimes such dedication to their bands that they can do extreme things to immortalize their love for the bands. Some of them had either the names or the symbols of the bans tattooed on their bodies while the others were doing even very dangerous things to meet their idols.

Recently, the journalist David Farrier discovered an interesting example of what fans can do to honor their favorite bands and musicians. According to the story shared by Farrier on his Twitter account, mother from New Zealand found the best and the most interesting way to show her dedication to her favorite bands. Apparently, she named her three children Metallica, Slayer, and Pantera.

The mother also she revealed to the journalist that her kid Metallica’s middle name is And Justice For All. Even though Farrier became suspicious about this naming, he learned the truth after his researches. David reached the Registrar-General Jeff Montgomery and asked him about the naming process. Montgomery stated that there are no restrictions unless it is an offensive name.

Additionally, Farries mentioned that he personally saw the birth certificates and talked to the mother in person. During an interview with the journalist, the mother stated that ‘it’s not easy raising three of the heaviest bands.’ David also added that he can’t wait to hear the comments of Metallica, Slayer, and Pantera about the way one of their biggest fans paid them tribute.

Farrier’s tweets read:

“I am 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.

Plus, I’ve seen the birth certificates. anyway, waiting for comments from Metallica, Slayer, and Pantera as clearly this metal mother (and her kids) deserve free metal gigs for life.

Finally, 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.)”
