Zakk Wylde Names Baby After Black Sabbath
15
Zakk Wylde has paid tribute to Black Sabbath band by naming his forth child after them. Zakk and his wife Babaranne posted this update last Thursday: "VALHALLA JAVA ALMIGHTY BLACK LABEL!!! SABBATH PAGE WIELANDT WYLDE Has Come to Join The Mother Chapter!!!!" Sabbath Page Wielandt Wylde weighs eight pounds and one ounce, and measured 21 inches long, according to Henne Music. Congratulations to the Wylde family from UG! Meanwhile, the guitarist has been touring with Ozzy Osbourne on his current tour which replaced the cancelled Black Sabbath dates after Tony Iommi's cancer diagnosis early this year. Zakk's main band, Black Label Society, had recently announced that their next album won't arrive until 2014 at the earliest. "I would imagine 2014 will be the next studio album with the heavy stuff on it," Zakk said at the time. "I was just looking at my schedule and it's like two or three years, but it's already mapped out. Obviously st changes in between and we'll figure out what the f--k to do It really is crazy when you think about it."

    There's paying respect to a band and then there's giving your child a life of bullying at school... First and Last names of famous musicians usually sound fine but naming them Sabbath seems a bit far even being a Sabbath fan myself. I'd never call my child Metallica haha

    When was the last time a rock star had a baby and didn't inflict a god-awful name on it?

    A child named Sabbath - The laziest child in the history of the world.

    Dude, his father is Zakk Wylde... I don't think the other kids even dare to think about bullying him... But of course, the name is pretty unpractical and can be hard to have in certain situations.

    If my name was Sabbath Page Wielandt Wylde, and my dad was Zakk Wylde i'd be the happiest kid on the planet.

    Nick and Sophia Simmons...Jack, Kelly and Aimee Osbourne..those are normal names.

    I'm thinking that they'll either fall back to calling her Page, or maybe add an A to Sabbath, so she'd be Sabbatha (sort of like Tabitha). Would they shorten it and call her Sabby? Hmm... Either way, congrats Zakk!!

    He could have at least used Page as a first name and Sabbath as a middle or something... come on

    pretty sure Zakk is going to raise a strong kid and make nobody f**ks with Sabbath haha

    /facepalm. I really wish He'd quit the boner over his influences... We get it Zakk, you're soooo obsessed with Ozzy and Black Sabbath that you're willing to ruin your kid's name over it.... I can imagine that his levelheaded wife wanted to give their kid a normal name that it won't be ostracized over but Zakk was like "C'mon honey, how are people supposed to know how cool my CD collection is?!!" Gimme a break. What if the kid wants NOTHING to do with his preferred genre of music?!!

    Does a name matter on a personal opinion? Just because he doesn't the greatest vibrato doesn't mean this guy shouldn't be able to name his child

    Lets hope little Sabbath Wylde will follow in the footsteps of his father

    He should've been called "Symptom of the Universe" Wylde or "Sweet Leaf" Wylde, something like that'd have been a better tribute.

No, his oldest is like 40 XD His 2 most recent additions are 2 & 5 months. He's still got the ammunition of life at age 67.
    Ammunition of life...awesome!

    *cringe* Even the ostensibly humble members of the rock world get caught up in their own celebrity and show their loss of reality.

    I like how so many people are insistent that the kid won't get bullied because apparently her dad would kick a kid's ass.

    I'd expect the kid to be a Crybaby, so why not name it Kirk? Or Dunlop?

    I don't think that's such a terrible name. I love when people have rad and inventive names! Besides, the word "sabbath" is phonetically pleasing and is named after a band that never seems dated or irrelevant. It's not like he named her Milli Vanilli or Baha Men.

    "weighs eight pounds and one ounce, and measured 21 inches long" about the same as Zakk's beard then

    i'm pretty sure the second any child sees Zakk they will know to be friends with the kid.
