Celebrity kids’ whacky names

LONDON: Frank Zappa’s daughter Moon Unit has topped a list of celebrity offspring with the most bizarre names, according to an online poll published on November 14. Another of the US singer-songwriter’s four children — Dweezil — also makes the top 10 at number seven. Moon Unit Zappa won out ahead of Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter, Apple.

The survey of 2,300 people was carried out by online entertainment site getlive.co.uk but found that the names of Michael Jackson’s children, Prince Michael and Prince Michael II, were not “wacko” enough for the top 10. The top 10 are: 1 Moon Unit — Frank Zappa; 2 Apple — Chris Martin (Colplay); 3 Misty Kyd — Sharleen Spiteri (Texas); 4 Geronimo — Alex James (Blur); 5 Heavenly Hirani Tiger Lily — Michael Hutchence/Paula Yates; 6 Dandelion — Keith Richards (Rolling Stones); 7 Dweezil — Frank Zappa; 8 Elijah Bob Patricius Guggi Q — Bono (U2); 9 Zowie Bowie — David Bowie; 10 Rufus Tiger — Roger Taylor (Queen).
