One mother in New Zealand may have come up with the perfect names, as long as her children’s friends are fans of heavy-metal. The mother went viral recently after it was revealed she named her three kids Metallica, Slayer, and Pantera.

While most online didn’t believe a mother would name her kids after the three iconic metal bands, the story was confirmed by filmmaker David Farrier in a series of tweets.

According to Farrier, he even contacted New Zealand's registrar-general after seeing a birth certificate for a child named Metallica with the middle name “And Justice For All,” the title of the band’s fourth album. “It’s not easy raising three of the heaviest bands,” said the mother of the three kids.

According to Loudersound, there are no restrictions in New Zealand for naming a child after bands or albums. The story quickly went viral, giving way too many people inspiration for naming their future kids. Expect some strange names for the next generation.
