Bolivian Couple Explain Decision To Name Son IRON MAIDEN
February 16, 2017
According to ATB Digital, a Bolivian rocker couple have named their newborn son Iron Maiden in honor of the heavy metal legends.
César Durán Alpiri, who is described as an "IRON MAIDEN superfan," said it was his idea to name his son after the band because he was inspired by MAIDEN's iconic mascot Eddie.
Surrounded by IRON MAIDEN memorabilia in his home, César told Ruptly TV (see video report below): "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."
César and his wife have also shared Iron Maiden's birth certificate on social media, confirming that his full name is Iron Maiden Duran Ruiz.
