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.

Wolf and Lux Bobby Gillespie ( ex Primal Scream) His 2 sons with Kathy England. Ana
Wolfgang Eddie Van Halen Actually dear editor, there ARE people named Wolfgang that are from Holland. Although, I don't know why it would matter if there were or not. Does that mean, being Dutch and German myself, that I am not allowed to use any names outside my nationality background? (Editor's note: Thank you for answering my question, skylar. I didn't mean anything personal about you or the Van Halens or any nationality. And you can name your child anything you want. I apologize if you felt insulted.) skylar
Wolfgang Eddie Van Halen Given it's also the name of the guitar he uses, the Peavey Wolfgang. DuDeMaN
Wolfgang Perry Farrell His second child. Renae
Wolfgang Eddie Van Halen It's quite a normal German name. Some advice to Americans in general, maybe learn something about the bigger part of the world and don't think anything strange you just don't know about. (Editor's note: Eddie Van Halen is Dutch; his wife Valerie Bertinelli is an Italian-American. Any Wolfgangs in those areas too?) Kees
Wolfgang/Wolfie Eddie Van Halen It's no sin to be a Mozart fan, but to put so much pressure on a kid by naming him Wolfgang is unethical to say the least. rockon
Woody Zoe Ball Arrrrgggggg. You never see any celeb naming there kid something normal. I mean, WOODY. What is he, a Cow Boy from Toy Story? What is this world coming to? And I mean David Bowie, don't get me started!  Rowan
