Baby Metallica allowed to keep her name

Authorities withdraw their objections

The parents who have been fighting to keep their seven-month old girl’s name Metallica have won their legal battle.

The girl, whose full name is Metallica Tomaro, has been allowed to keep her name after Swedish authorities withdrew their objections.

As previously reported Swedish tax officials objected to the fact the baby was named after the rock band.


The law in Sweden insists that parents must get approval of both first and second names officially in a bid to avoid what they consider offensive or unsuitable choices. However, the opposition has now been dropped.

Mother Karolina Tomaro told The Rock Radio: “Several people suggested I should move to where they live because then our daughter wouldn’t have any problems in being named Metallica.”
