10. 4real Superman Wheaton
4real Superman Wheaton was born in February 2008. The New Zealand court has taken issue with his name because numerals are not allowed in names. The parents, however, are debating this law. If they cannot name him 4real, they will make his name “Superman,” officially, but friends and family will call him “4real.” They were inspired when they saw the baby for the first time under the ultra-sound and discovered he was “for real!”

7. Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen Zappa
Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen Zappa is the youngest child of Frank Zappa. Her siblings are Moon Unit Zappa, Dweezil Zappa and Ahmet Zappa. Apparently, she was screaming louder than any other baby in the nursery, and that’s how she got the name “Diva.” And I suppose “thin muffins” make you scream, too.

Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116 (pronounced Albin) was a name given to a child by the parents of a Swedish family, which they described as “a pregnant, expressionistic development that we see as an artistic creation.” The name was rejected by a Swedish court and they were charged a fine. The child’s name was later changed to A (also pronounced Albin), but this too was rejected. On his first passport, the boy’s name reads “Icke namngivet gossebarn,” meaning “unnamed little boy.”
@ was the name that a Chinese couple attempted to give their child in August 2007. Li Yuming, the deputy chief of the State Language Commission, did not say if officials accepted the name. The Chinese, though familiar with the @ symbol, often use the English “at” to sound it out. With a drawn out “T” is sounds something like “ai ta,” or “love him,” in Mandarin.
