    what's with the weird names

    i cannot figure out what would possess musicians to name their children such odd names.. for example..

    if i remember correctly, alice coopers daughter is named calico- that's a bit unusual

    frank zappa's daughters are named moon and diva, and his son (i think) is named dweezil

    i wonder if normal people could get away with naming their children such odd names :scratch:

    They make a living being famous. They can't afford to have their children have regular names. And I think the public expects it.

    Oh, and drugs.

    I know twins IRL called Gandalf and Merlin, my better half's son is called Wolf, and I know other people called things like Star, Snowbell and Snarf (from Thundercats).

    Names are things that we often get from our cultural background, my own first and second names are just my grandfather's reversed.. people name their children after kings and famous people, why not after fictional people or other such "strange" things?

    Mind you, I think celebs do it cos they dont get told "no, thats a stupid name" enough by people around them.

    1: jizzeppelin [(a) if female]
    2: snarf

    Forget celebs, why are there so many sissy names for boys now?

    Dylan, Caleb, Jordan, Elijah, Angel, Mason, Gavin, Cole, Devin, Trevor, etc? Source

    Who do you want at your side in a fight? Caleb, Gavin and Angel or Guido, Eddie and Mack?

    Recently some article was published in some periodical (don't remember which one), about the current trend in naming. Supposedly having one's kid stand out from a crowd is getting rather popular these days.

    I find it annoying when guys get girly names, or names that arent really gender specific...

    Anapoo..everytime I see your name I am reminded of the little girl on Pippi Longstocking. Not Pippi, but her friend, who is a girly girl :).

    what better way to show your devotion to a video game.. than to use it to name your own offspring.. hey.. why not show your devotion to a clan by making your kid's name the clan name.. :\ sounds like i've got an idea.. this could work..
