Arugula Lego Metallica Andresson

Naming restrictions in Sweden have been relaxed. While religious names [Gud, Allah, Fan (Devil)] are still forbidden, as are gender-based names for the wrong gender, it is now permitted to name a child (or change your name as an adult) after any member of the plant kingdom, or after a rock band, or corporate name, as long as they wouldn't otherwise cause offense. (So you can't name yourself after a condom manufacturer)

I suspect, though, a girl named Arugula Lego Metallica Andresson might choose the nickname Alma.
