    Oddball guitarist Frank Zappa gave all of his children unique monikers, from Dweezil to Diva, but none were more far out than daughter Moon Unit, born in September, 1967. Despite her unusual name, Moon grew up to be a successful actress, singer and writer.

    Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale drew on their love of a local beach (Zuma) and reggae (Nesta, Bob Marley’s middle name) to name their second child in 2008.

    8. Rocket Rodriguez

    Like the Kardashians and their “K,” all of “Sin City” director Robert Rodriguez’s five children have names beginning with “R.” Son Rocket is joined by brothers Racer and Rebel and sisters Rogue and Rhiannon.

    9. Brooklyn Beckham

    Named after the New York borough where he was conceived by parents David and Victoria Beckham, Brooklyn paved the way for Ashlee and Pete’s Bronx.

    10. Apple Martin
