Names -> Weird Names of Music Performer's Children -> N

You think your parents gave you a strange name? Try being born to a rock star. It seems like strange names are just part of what you have to put up with. The most memorable of course would have to be Moon Unit for the daughter of the late great Frank Zappa.

Submitted by:
Najee LL Cool J About his son, his eldest child, Najee, he notes: "I didn't make him a junior, because I want him to exist on this planet as his own being and not be burdened by sharing my name. He'll have a totally different upbringing from mine." I kinda like the name Najee, but then there's something weird about it. It's still cute at the same time.  Victoria
Najee  LL Cool J  Kenia
Narija'h Brittany Ashford  Brittany Ashford

Natashya Tori Amos Lothlorien was a land of Elves, not Faeries. Brie

Natashya Lorien Tori Amos I like the first name, but the middle name sounds a bit too much like a really weird alien from Babylon 5. LadyCorneliusPlum
Natashya Lórien Tori Amos Lórien is short for Lothlórien, one of the main Elven cities in the Lord of the Rings. It is (or was, rather) ruled by Lady Galadriel and kept alive by Nenya, the Elven Ring of Water. It diminished when Galadriel and the Three Rings left for Valinor after the One Ring was destroyed. It was also "the name of the gardens and dwelling-place of the Vala Irmo, who was himself usually called Lórien" (The Silmarillion). Lothlórien means Lórien of the Blossom, and loth means flower. I doubt even Tori knew all of that! Irenthel
Natashya Lórien Tori Amos Lórien stems from the name for the faery land in Lord of the Rings, Lothlorien. jennie

Navy Talia Nash Nivea and Terius Nash I think what she might have done was use her and her husbands first letter in their first names and used names with those letters. NTN, that is what me and my fiance did with our 5 year old son and plan to do with the baby we have one the way!!!!! Babygirl
Nayib Gloria Estefan  Eric Andrews
