Parents of the Iron Maiden Baby Speak Out


Last week we told you guys about a baby born in Bolivia that was named after the iconic metal band, Iron Maiden. The baby, whose full name is Iron Maiden Duran Ruiz, was born in Santa Cruz, the region’s capital city.

I mentioned that I would love to know what the parents were like without ever thinking anything would come of it, but it seems that the lucky couple has decided to speak out on their decision to name their adorable little one Iron Maiden.

The father, César Durán Alpiri, is described as an “Iron Maiden superfan,” and according to an interview with Ruptly TV he attributed his name choice to Iron Maiden’s iconic mascot, Eddie:

“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.”

They look like perfectly normal people that just wanted to name their child after something they hold dear. Makes sense to me. We wish the new parents nothing but luck.
