The parents of a seven-month-old girl in Kungalv, Sweden named their child Metallica after the esteemed metal band of the same name (you know, the one that has sucked since the early ‘90s?).
Apparently there was some protest over the decision and it even went to Swedish court. One member of the jury actually objected to the ruling, claiming that the name will probably cause 'discomfort' to its bearer.
The couple says they combined their first names to come up with Metallica. I think the kid is actually less likely to be embarrassed over the name, and more embarrassed over having parents named Met and Lica!
