Frank Zappa's children

How could I have forgotten about this one? By now it's all but expected that if you're a celebrity you'll give your child a bizarre name. I don't know why exactly this is, but the Apples and Moxie Crimefighters of the world have much older people to look up to. Going right back to 1967, Frank Zappa had already started the trend. Let's look at the four children in full:

Moon Unit Zappa was born in 1967. She prefers to go just by Moon, as Unit is her middle name.

Dweezil Zappa was born in 1969. The hospital refused to register him as Dweezil, so he was registered as Ian Donald Calvin Euclid Zappa. He's since had his name legally changed to Dweezil.

Ahmet Emuukha Rodan Zappa was born in 1974, and has a relatively normal name. At least, Ahmet is a normal name. Can't say much about his middle names.

Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen Zappa was born in 1979, and certainly got the worst of the bunch. There's nothing wrong with 'Diva' itself - it's actually a pretty name. But it's all downhill from there as we get to the middle names. Poor girl.
