Frank Zappa's daughter Moon Unit Zappa -- her real name -- has filed for divorce from her husband, Matchbox Twenty guitarist Paul Doucette ... TMZ has learned.

Moon Unit filed the papers in L.A. County Superior Court last week -- seeking to end her 9-and-a-half year marriage.

Moon Unit and her husband were married in June 2002, and have one 7-year-old daughter named Mathilda Plum.

Fun facts: Moon Unit also has a laundry list of acting credits, including a recent appearance on "Grey's Anatomy." Frank's other kids are named Dweezil, Ahmet, and Diva.

Moon Unit Zappa "her real name..." Of course it's her name. She's a known figure in the culture unless the TMZ writer is 14.

I've always thought Moon Unit was cute.

I think I'll add her to my list of things to do.

It's really messed up to name a child Dweezil. It's like naming them a joke name. One reason celebrities name their children such awful names is that they know the kid will never have to go out and get a real job--they will always have money from their parents. "Dweezil" and "Moon Unit" would have trouble getting a regular job in the real world.

I think everyone already knows that is her real name is Moon Unit and that her siblings also have odd names. So stop trying to be clever TMZ.
