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.
|Vega Wood||Danny Wood||It's a very cute and different name for a girl. :)||Celeste|
|Venetia Ember||Don Everly||Her name is interesting for two reasons.First,she has the same first name as Don's second wife(coincidence or not?)Second,how did he come with the name Ember.I'm guessing maybe Don ,upon hearing the good news,absentmindedly stuck his lit cigarette behind his ear like a pencil and set his hair on fire.Just speculation,though.||Marian|
|Venetia Ember||Don Everly||Marian mentioned that Venetia was named after Don's second wife. What makes this so unusual is that he was still married to his first wife at the time of Venetia's birth. It seems he was already canoodling with Venetia Stevenson (his second wife) while his poor first wife was in the hospital having their baby. I wonder if she knew then that their child was being named after a starlet that he had met on the Ed Sullivan show?||Marti|
|Venetia Ember||Don Everly||Maybe naming her Venetia was a coincidence, but "Ember" was mostly likely because his mother's maiden name was Margaret EMBRY. (He could have given her the middle name of Margaret, but then she would have had 3 names that had 3 syllables!)||Marianne50614|
|Venetia Ember||Don Everly||Just to clear something up -- Marti's "canoodling" story isn't quite right. Don Everly and Venetia Stevenson did first meet when they both appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show, while Don was still married to his first wife. BUT they didn't meet again and start dating until after Don was divorced. I don't doubt that Don Everly has had plenty of hound dog moments in his life, but this wasn't one of them.||J.J.|
|Venetia Everly||Don Everly||To answer Marti's question, no, Venetia's Mom did not know that they were naming her after a starlet Don met on the Ed Sullivan show. I know this because Venetia told me herself. We were friends in Hollywood until we lost touch when she moved back to Nashville.||speediejohn|
|Vercy||Master P||It's a weird name. Master P, who's real name is Percy, names all his kids after him (or anything that rhymes with it).||megan|
|Verena||Madonna||I read that Madonna would have named her second child Verena if it had been a girl.||Janet|
|Verena||Madonna||Which is weird why?||Ella|
|Viggo Moriah Hanson||Taylor Hanson||Viggo? Moriah??||Anny|
|Violet Maye||Dave Grohl||Dave named his beautiful daughter after his grandmother.||Holly|
|Virginia Madison||Sissy Spacek||I believe she goes by her middle name, which is starting to catch on as a girl's name. A friend of mine named her daughter Madison, and I think it's a well-thought out choice.||Eric Andrews|
|Viva Lee||Martin Gore (Depeche Mode)||His first daughters name, which might have been inspired a little by maybe Vegas, Elvis or something else. He also has a second daughter Ava Lee and son Calo Leon.||H.j.M|
