A couple from Bolivia have named their new-born son ‘Iron Maiden’ in homage to the heavy metal legends.

Proud dad and Iron Maiden superfan Cesar Duran Alpiri says it was his idea to give the name to his son and he was inspired by Maiden’s beloved mascot Eddie the Head.

Speaking to Ruptly TV at his home while surrounded by Iron Maiden memorabilia, Cesar 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."

Cesar and his wife have also shared Iron Maiden’s birth certificate on social media confirming that his full name is Iron Maiden Duran Ruiz.

We’re just glad Cesar wasn’t a Toad the Wet Sprocket or Puddle of Mudd fan. You can watch footage of Cesar unveiling Iron Maiden to the world here:
