    Re: For fun--songs???

    Some of my favorites are:
    Rhiannon - Fleetwood Mac
    Jolene - in three different songs by Dolly Parton/Ray LaMontagne/The Weepies
    Cecilia - Simon and Garfunkel
    Julia - The Beatles
    Valerie - The Zutons/Amy Winehouse
    Prudence - The Beatles
    Tessie - Dropkick Murphys
    Maybelline - Chuck Berry
    Amber - 311
    Mariella - Kate Nash
    Lola - Barry Manilow/The Kinks (completely disregarding association)
    Angelina - Louis Prima
    Ruby - Rolling Stones

    and then Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls and Lua by Bright Eyes both made me fall in love with those names even though they are just the titles and never actually said in either song.

    My favorite name song is "Jane" by Barenaked Ladies -- love "sweet Jane St. Clair" -- and my oldest daughter likes that they say her name at one point in it, too.

    Claudie by Status Quo! That will be my girls song lol.

    I also adore Rosalin by Jack Savoretti, and the song makes me consider using the name. He pronounces it ROSE-uh-lyn.

    There's also Terence Trent D'arby - Penelope Please, Tara Linda - Mirabel, Primal Scream - Ivy Ivy Ivy and Show Me The Skyline - May

    Love them all
