A Bolivian couple has apparently named their newborn son 'Iron Maiden', in honor of the heavy metal band they adore. According to ATB Digital, the child's father, César Durán Alpiri, is an Iron Maiden "superfan" and it was his idea for the name.

Iron Maiden Duran Ruiz was born on February 1.

Alpiri said, "It has a lot to do with Eddie, the head of Iron Maiden. I want my son to have that strength, that energy. I want him to fight for what he wants, to have the attitude and, above all, to be mentally strong."

You can view a video report, in addition to the boy's birth certificate, below.
