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

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.

Ahmet Frank Zappa Frank was on a talk show one time (maybe Johnny Carson) and the subject of his kids' unusual names came up. He said that Ahmet had grown tired of kids at school calling him Ahmet the Vomit and had started calling himself Rick instead. He abruptly went back to Ahmet when the same kids called him Rick the P****. One of my favorite Zappa memories! buddyboy

Apple Gwynyth Paltrow & Chris Martin And I thought Bob Geldof was insane for calling one of his kids Peaches. Mhanna
Apple Chris Martin Okay, I don't really care what her name is. Apple is kinda cool, but this is a website called "Weird Names of Music Performer's Children". So stop complaining and move on to "Creative Names of Music Performer's Children". Thank you.  ...
Apple Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin Give these people a break! They are parents, and whatever reason they had for giving their child the name, I'm sure they love her and have her best interest at heart. Maybe little Apple will dislike her name someday, and maybe she will be made fun of by cruel kids at school. But how many of us dislike our own perfectly normal names and got made fun of anyway?! Compared to the misfortune of some children in the world, I'm sure little Apple will at least enjoy a happy childhood filled with her parents' love. When does a normal name ever guaranteed a happy child or nice person?! Not to mention, the child does have two lovely middle names to choose from should she decides to change it. Anna
Apple Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin I don't know what is it with all the critics regarding this name? It's a shame so many of yous have the effort to criticize the name of a baby born to Hollywood stars whos already famous for that. I mean look at that she is only few months old and everyone knows her name and they remember it! Why? Because it is unusual, but kinda sweet-unique. So regardless if her name is Apple she's already famous and loved by that name.. How many of yous can say that for yourselfs? You can have the prettiest and most modern names (like eg. madison, emily, sarah) but ya ain't where Apple is. Stupid of yous to judge that she will be made fun of when she goes to school. First of all she will never go to such a school where that could happen, because she will go to special schools where kids from other celebrities and just rich heirs of kids go, who will anyway have similar names to her... So hers won't even stand out. All in all I think Apple is such a warm girlie name that represents something soft, pretty, emotional, little and unique--just like she is! All the best in your life, you are a lucky litttle baby girl! Anna
Apple Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin (Maybe) her next baby will be named as Orange. karla
Apple Gwyneth Paltrow Hey, maybe she should have another one, then she will have a "Pear" (pair)! DIVA Karla
Apple Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin She said an apple is pure and other names are fruit or flowers too (Poppy, Peony), but can you imagine what this child's classmates are going to say? Did they think of the child? Sue
Apple Chris Martin (Coldplay) Martin and actress wife Gwyneth Paltrow must have been thinking their daughter was the "apple" of their eye, but this is too hippy, dippy for me Arlene Weiss
Apple Chris Martin You people should be ashamed of yourselves!!!! you should NEVER make fun of a child like that. how would you feel if you child came home from school everyday in tears and then she comes to you and says " i hate my name its dumb everyone makes fun of me and i dont want to go to school anymore i hate this i wish i had a different name" or something like that you would get upset! and dont try to say that you wouldnt b/c you know that you would and you wont know what to say to her. yeah her name might be different but so what like Paris thats a different name but its nice have you every met another Paris have you ever heard of another Paris NO!!!!!! so you shouldnt make fun of a name and if you do then your your aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! just know that if that little girl reads this just know that it will be your fault if she starts to cry! and i know that im being mean to you but you dont get it you just dont so if you dont know her or if you dont no how it feels to be made fun of then you should no you have to SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! why b/c DONT know how it feels to be made fun b/c of your name so just.....leave her alone ok! [Ed.'s note: We're not making fun of the offspring, we're making fun of the parents that named the child that. Please read more carefully, Bethany.] Bethany
Apple Chris Martin (Coldplay) Because 'Banana' is probably already taken. (Actually, I won't be surprised.) Bucky Bunny
Apple Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin Has she forgotten that her daughter has to introduce herself in school? Sherree
Apple Chris Martin & Gwyneth Paltrow WHY? Why would you want to name your child after a fruit? What's next....Melon? Orange? Pear? Nat x
Apple  Chris Martin You [guys] are being sooooooo mean. Apple is sweet, and the girl's friends can always call her Alison or Ab or something when she is older. Chris Martin is THE BEST.  menna
Apple And Moses Chris Martin/Gwyneth Paltrow Very different! It is as Biblical as Moses. Hey, how about the name Eve's Lunch? rebecca benefield
Apple Blyth Alison Martin Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin How about possible endorsement deals with Steve Jobs in the future? Neogorbash
Apple Blythe Alison Gwyneth Paltrow And Chris Martin There's has been so much harshing on this name, but I love it. Not too fond of the sound of Apple Martin but Apple Paltrow sounds great. kiki
Apple Blythe Alison Gwyneth Paltrow And Chris Martin  I love this name. If you like unusual names youl probably like it. I heard that she was named Apple because she was the apple of there eyes. I think that's sweet.  tori
Apple Blythe Alison Martin Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Perfect Joke Stuff 'Lets hope she's not a 'BAD APPLE', if she has a breakdown she'll be known as 'Apple Crumble', if she falls over we can call her 'apple turnover' and " where is Gwyneth's baby now?, Be cider' ahhhh i am so easily amused (p.s do americans know what apple turnover is? FYI it's a apple upsidedown pudding, and cider is a apple orientated alcoholic drink, i'm guessing u have that though) Katherine
Apple Blythe Alison Martin Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow I am the biggest Coldplay fan ever and, although I was a bit shocked at first, Apple is a better name than something common like 'Rebecca' or 'Jamie-Lee'. And little Apple can always revert to her pretty second name, Blythe, when she's older if she doesn't like it. Rage
Apple Blythe Alison Martin Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Good grief, what a bad name! It's not as bad as Moon Unit, but still! What's their next child going to be named, do I dare ask: Guava? Mango? Kiwi? Banana? Genevieve
Apple Blythe Alison Martin Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin It's not that they gave her an usual name, that's fine. It's not that the named hera after a fruit. It's just not a pretty feminine name at all! It doesn't sound good, that's all :-/ Anaid
Apple Blythe Alison Martin Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin This is news today on this child. I'm sorry to say its the most stupidest name I have EVER come across. Name a kid after a peice of fruit, ok they live in NYC "The Big Apple" but please man. They both like the name too. WHAT A JOKE! Jennifer
Apple Blythe Alison Martin Chris Martin Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has given birth a baby girl at a London hospital. The Hollywood star actress gave birth to her first child after a "long labour". She and her singer husband, Chris Martin of Coldplay, have named the baby Apple Blythe Alison Martin. She weighed 9lbs 11oz and both mother and baby are said to be doing fine. A spokesman for the couple said: "Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are delighted to announce the birth of their first child, Apple Blythe Alison Martin, who was born in London, after a long labour, on May 14, and weighed 9lb 11oz. "Both mother and baby are very well." The celebrity couple said they were ecstatic over the birth of their daughter. Martin said: "We are 900 miles over the moon, and we'd like to thank everyone at the hospital who have looked after us amazingly." There might even be a song called "Apple" on the next Coldplay album. Grapefruit (No - really!)
Apple Blythe Allison Martin Gwyneth Paltrow And Chris Martin First of all, they named her Apple because an apple is pure and comes from the earth. They named her Blythe after Gwyneth's actress mother (Blythe Danner). One thing, though: Apple Martin can turn into something totally different if you add a "i" to the end of her last name. (Apple martini) jen s
Apple Martin Gwyneth Paltrow And Chris Martin I think I read somewhere that they named her after the city where she was concieved... the Big Apple. But then that was also in an article about why Debra Messing and Cate Blanchett named theri sons Roman (after the city they were conceived -- Rome ??) Jessica

Artemis Alex James (Blur bassist) His child is a boy. zuna
Arun U2 Arun means the Sun in Hindu Mythology, nothing weird bout that, it signifies the universal lifegiver. Arun
Arun, Sian, Blue Angel The Edge (U-2) "Arun" is East Indian, I know several Aruns. "Sian" is Welsh (as is The Edge's heritage, being born David EVANS) for "Jane" (whereas "Sinead" as in O'Connor, is the Irish version). Blue Angel, hmmm, could be a Marlene Dietrich fixation or perhaps he likes the hotdogging fighter planes that perform in the states...!  Adge
Askia Me'Shell Ndege'Ocello  Eric Andrews
Astala Peaches Geldof No comment. Celeste
Astrella Celeste Donovan Astrella is another typically earthly name for one of Donovan's kids. He did write a song named "Celeste", so I imagine that is where the name came from. Eric Andrews

Ava Martina McBride This is such a beautiful name. I may use it when I have a child. Great job at picking the name Martina. Ashley

Ava Elizabeth Sambora Richie Sambora  lisa ware
Ava Elizabeth Sambora Richie Sambora Very cute name for a girl. She arrived WAY before Reese and Ryan's girl, also called Ava Elizabeth. Poppy
Ava Joe And Alfie Chris Wolstenholm ('Muse' bassist) Ummm... right... Double ohhh
Ava McLean AJ McLean I guess they wanted their first child to have an A name? Celeste
Ava Sambora Richie Sambora 'Nuff said! Brannyfield
