I christen thee

As someone who is pretty liberal on naming kids, I find the news that "Metallica" doesn't fly as a name in Stockholm both chilling and hilarious. Chilling because it was put up to a vote. Hilarious because I immediately expected the reason to be that Metallica themselves were filing some sort of lawsuit. Celebrities have no shortage of strangely-named children (from Apple to Zolten), but is the rock-group as given name without precedent? McSweeney's should run a list of band names (adapted from my work itunes playlist) that would make great Hollywood children's names:

Beatle
Dokken
Foo
Kashmere
Pink
Raconteur
Tenacious
Who
Winger
YEAH YEAH YEAH
ZZ
