Is there a name that has been the subject of more songs than Jennifer?

Jennifer Juniper
Jennifer Eccles
867-5309/Jenny
Jenny, Jenny (Little Richard)
Jenny Take A Ride (Mitch Ryder)
Jennie Lee (Jan & Arnie)
Poor Jenny (Everly Brothers)

Just to name a few...

I know this because I'm married to a Jennifer and I pick up records with her name in them. I have dozens that were never hits but still used the name.

mechgreg: sararenne: thanks to Jefferson Starship, storms have been brewing in my eyes since I was 8

/even now, almost 30 years later, someone sings that damn song to me at least once a month

I work with a Roxanne and I am pretty sure she would slap anyone who says her name in anything close to a Sting-like accent.


How would she react to, "Roxanne! Roxanne! I wanna be your man!"?

Burn_The_Plows: I haven't heard of the majority of those songs, but the list fails w/o "Big Legged Emma". And don't forget Kenny's whores "Lucille" and "Ruby". Cheating on your war wounded husband is pretty low.


Thank you. Basically, "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town" was a crippled guy asking his wife to not be a whore. In fact, that should have been the name of the song... "Ruby, Don't Be A Whore". And there could have been a response record called "Ruby's Got To Be A Whore".

My wife's friend Sharon (non-western background, and was a recent immigrant) named her daughter Sharona, since she wanted her daughter to have a similar sounding name to her own, and had heard the name on a song on the radio, and like the sound of the name.
Unfortunately her English skills were insufficient for her to understand the implications of the whole song...

I tried to gently encourage them to find another name.

The mother was certain that the song wouldn't be associated with her daughter, and it wouldn't matter, and she really like the sound of the name.

Well, the daughter eventually reached an age where the teasing became personal, and asked to be known as "Sharonie", and eventually as a young adult changed from that to "Ronnie", to finally escape the association.

I resisted the "I told you so" opportunity...

/ think 2x before you name your kid.
// they gotta live with your mistake.
/// obligatory 3rd slashie.

And he shall be Levon

farkingismybusiness: Brandy. You're a fine girl.


Amen. Hate that song. I was named after it more than a decade after it came out. Still haunts me.

/Not even spelled the same
//Sigh
