    Just today I've been listening to Veronica by Elvis Costello. When we named our last baby James we so loved listening to Sweet Baby James so much that now I want all my future babies to have their own song. And I don't think my hubby would even like the name Caroline if it weren't for the song.

    Roy Orbison had songs called Lana, Leah, Belinda and Claudette.

    The latter was written about his first wife.

    Don't think anyone's mentioned "Miriam" by Norah Jones. There's also Bruno Mars' "Natalie," and ZZ Ward's "Put The Gun Down" references an Adeline ("Adeline, have mercy/you don't want to break my heart"). Though none of these are necessarily good connotations, someone above mentioned Jolene, so I just felt the need to throw some of these in the mix.

    Come on Eileen - Dexys Midnight Runners
    Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond
    Valerie - The Zutons
    Jolene - Dolly Parton
    Come on Marianne - The Four Seasons (cause thats my name..hehehehe)

    And the Beatles have soooo many songs with girl names. Lucy, Michelle, Rita, Sadie, Julia, Molly, Prudence

    I think it would be cute to have a child named after a song, cause then you could always sing it to them.
