Swedish Couple Cause Controversy Over Metallica Name
A Swedish couple has been told they can't name their six-month-old baby girl METALLICA after the rock group they adore.
Tax officials in Sweden have told MICHAEL and KAROLINA TOMARO they'll refuse to acknowledge their daughter if they go ahead with plans to name her after the ENTER SANDMAN rockers.
The couple have now called on the support of the County Administrative Court in Goteborg, where lawmakers insist there's no reason preventing the Tomaros from calling their child whatever they want.
Little Metallica has already been baptized, but the Swedish National Tax Board officials have refused to register the name.
Karolina Tomaro says, "We've had to cancel trips... because we can't get her a passport without an approved name."
