Metal Baby Names

I'm a big fan of writer Margaret Eby and her new book, Rock and Roll Baby Names: Over 2,000 Music-Inspired Names, from Alison to Ziggy. Any nerd for names, music and/or good writing will be engrossed, and I'm sure that I will be picking up many more copies when my friends start having kids. In honor of Margaret's book, particularly the chapter that starts on page 137, here are 20 of my favorites.

  1. Trey Azagthoth (Morbid Angel) 
  2. Balsac the Jaws of Death (GWAR)  
  3. Beefcake the Mighty (GWAR)
  4. Igor Cavalera (Sepultura)
  5. Glenn Danzig
  6. Techno Destructo (GWAR)
  7. King Diamond
  8. Johan Hegg (Amon Amarth)
  9. Jizmak Da Gusha (GWAR)
  10. Nils Frykdahl (Sleepytime Gorilla Museum)
  11. Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) 
  12. Pepper Keenan (Corrosion of Conformity, Down) 
  13. Sleazy P. Martini (GWAR)     
  14. Flattus Maximus (GWAR) 
  15. Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses)
  16. Ozzy Osbourne
  17. Axl Rose (Guns N' Roses)
  18. Oderus Urungus (GWAR)
  19. Wolfgang Van Halen (Van Halen) 
  20. Kaizer Von Loopy (Hanzel und Gretyl)
