How did Freddie select his name?
My research indicates he was insipired by a specific site on Zanzibar. Please take a look if interested, at:

I think he selected his name 'coz he liked it. Mercury is a good word. That's it. He hadn't even been in Zanzibar for years when he picked his name.

I don't think he would have got it from a website, there was no Internet then, silly! :P

I know this one.

I was born Sept. 3rd
Freddie is Sept. 5th

We are both Virgos .... Mercury is our ruling planet in the zodiac.

The Queen crest is made out of the 4 Queen members zological signs.

"Mercury" is the female virgin... or "mother Mercury" (remember the song on Queen 1?)

Mercury came from Freddie's birthday.

He used the name becuase it was one of the greek gods, Mercury is the god of messages, and Freddie felt he had a message to tell, some shit like that. It's in a book somewhere, some interview he gave, so you know it's the truth eh!

Yes I think it came from the Greek messenger of the Gods. And BTW, the idea is not shit as someone above said!!! He actually had messages to give through his music, and very good ones too. He had a mission.

Of course, Virgo is the only female sign of the twelve, so "mother Mercury" makes sense, imagine a rock star with the name Ishtar Venus Isis Aphrodite -- Queen of Heaven!
