What's in a name

Children are so horrid to each other that I often think burdening them with a strange name to be a form of cruelty.

But it seems to be a fad among the famous. If you are concerned that the Beckhams' new baby, Harper Seven, sounds like a brand of lavatory cleaner, just consider David Bowie's son Zowie, and the late Frank Zappa's children Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan and Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen.
