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.

Zachary Brandon Dall Bobby Dall  mary jo
Zachary Jackson Levon and Elijah Joseph Daniel Elton John Their first names aren't bad to be honest and I assume that Elton chose their second middle names after his songs, Levon and Daniel, but Jackson? I knew someone who's dog was named Jackson dayna
Zak Harry Nilsson I'm not sure if Harry named it after Ringo's son of the same name, but since the two were close friends, it's possible. Eric Andrews
Zak Ringo Starr I guess it's short for Zachary. Zak Starkey was seen playing drums for Oasis at Glastonbury 2004. pickle*
Zeeta Serenity Bradshaw Tamira Bradshaw This name has really grown on me. so cute Chloe
Zelda Robin Williams WEIRD!!!!! billy
Zeppelin Jonathan Davis That`s propably because Jonathan likes Led Zeppelin. [Well, he likes Cannibal Corpse too, so maybe his next boy [if he will have another one] will be Cannibal]. hushabye
Ziggy Bob Marley  ayame
Ziggy Bob Marley His given name is actually David. I guess when he was a kid, he had a love for Bowie (you know, ZIGGY Stardust) and some how ended up with that nickname violaceous moon
Ziggy Bob Marley could it be possible he named him ziggy becasue of zig zag's, the french paper for hand rolling cigarets in which he would put weed, and u know rastas...always gotta have their weed!  j
Ziggy Jimi Hendrix Ziggy's a hot name and Hendrix is a legend. cass

Zion Fantasia Barrino This name is b-e-a-utiful! Kouirvonne

Zoe Brianne Dall Bobby Dall Poison's bass player's daughter. mj
Zoe Isabella Moon Kravitz Lenny Kravitz Her middle name is Isabella. Hendley
Zoe Jane Aaron Lewis and Vanessa Lewis  Nikki
Zoe Jane Lewis Aaron Lewis Of course, as you know Staind did a song about Zoe on the 14 Shades of Grey album. I find this name interesting because Staind has always written songs about finality, or endings. So Aaron likely picked Z to represent the "end" of the alphabet. The Jane probably ties in to this symbolism and mystery in Staind's lyrics such as the term, Jane Doe, which represents an unknown person. Again, this is just some weird interpretation. Aaron Lewis is a pretty smart guy, but not even he would think up that. Joey Lawrence (no, not the actor)
Zoe Moon Kravitz Lenny Kravitz Actually Zoe's mother Lisa Bonet's performer name is Liliquoi Moon. Celeste

Zowie Bowie David Bowie Bowie has been married two times. His first marriage was to Mary Angela ("Angie") Barnett in 1970. The couple separated and later divorced. He has one child, Duncan Zowie Heywood Bowie (who sometimes goes by the name of "Joe") born in 1971 by Angie. But, everyone calles him Duncan. He remarried supermodel Iman Abdulmajid (usually known just as "Iman") in 1992. The couple currently have one child, Alexandria Zahra Jones, who goes by Lexi. Katie
Zowie Bowie David Bowie His given name is Duncan Zowie Bowie. For a while when he was younger, he was known as Joe or Joey. He now goes by Duncan. He also uses his father's real last name, Jones. Duncan Jones is alright, if a bit plain. erin
Zowie Bowie David Bowie David Bowie's real last name is Jones, so wouldn't that make his son Zowie Jones? (or Joe, or Duncan as I've just read...) somegirl
Zowie Bowie David Bowie As someone mentioned, poor Zowie Bowie did change his name eventually ... but he changed it to JOEY! Nice move ... Camille
Zowie Bowie David Bowie David Bowie's son's full name was Zowie Duncan Haywood, and from the outset David admitted that he would encourage his son to change his name if he didn't like it. Presumeably, David was expecting him to adopt one of his middle names, the latter of which was David's father's name, rather than the not much better "Joey". Nick
Zowie Bowie David Bowie It's Zowie, not Zoey... and the poor boy changed it later on. Erika
Zowie Bowie (Jones) David Bowie Zowie is the male derivitive of the greek name 'Zoe' meaning life. I think its a beautiful name and as you have all said, he did leave the option for him to change it to Duncan. Trace
