Rock Star Baby Names: From Ace to Zuma

rockbaby

Rock musicians have gotten the rap of being the most extreme baby namers, which certainly is true for some but by no means all.  This led me to wonder if their choices bore any relationship to the kind of music they played: would the Dixie Chicks, for example, pick names with a countryish flavor, Atomic Kitten more edgy?

And how about within the groups– were their choices in sync?  Since they functioned basically  as families on the road, how did their kids’ names work as sibsets?  In the examples listed below, you can see certain similarities—such as a Beatles theme running through the  Oasis offspring, and several other musical references, including Jagger, Les Paul, Elvis, Madonna, Bebop and even Rock .
