Which musician named his children Ahmet, Diva, Dweezil and Moon Unit?
Answer: Frank Zappa and his wife Gail had four children: Moon Unit, Diva Muffin, Dweezil and Ahmet Emuukha Rodan. The bizarre names of their children all have special
meaning within the family.
Diva was given her moniker because she was a noisy baby. Their son’s name Dweezil was a pet name Zappa came up with, Ahmet was the name of an imaginary butler, and Moon Unit, was given to their
other daughter because at birth Zappa told Gail they could name her Moon or Motörhead! She chose Moon. Asked once why he gave his children such unusual names, Zappa reputedly said simply: “Because I wanted to.”
Frank Vincent Zappa was an American musician, composer, activist and filmmaker. His work is characterized by nonconformity, free-form improvisation, sound experiments,
musical virtuosity, and satire of American culture. Wikipedia
