Songs are often written in dedication to a special woman. Sometimes the subject of the singer's affection remains a mystery, whilst other songs mention the female love interest's name.

For songs which do use a woman's name in the title, take a look at the list below:

The list really is endless. The name Maria, for example, is the title of songs by artists as diverse as Patti Smith, Blondie, Rage Against The Machine, and Justin Bieber.

Other girls' name titles include:
  • Sisters of Mercy- Alice
  • Pixies- Allison
  • Bob Dylan- Angelina
  • The Police- Be my girl Sally
  • Simon & Garfunkel- Cecilia
  • The Fratellis- Chelsea Dagger
  • Tom Jones- Delilah
  • The Beatles- Eleanor Rigby
  • Beethoven- Fur Elise
  • A Perfect Circle- Judith
  • Eminem- Kim
  • David Bowie- Letter to Hermione
  • Barry Manilow- Mandy
  • Kings of Leon- Mary
  • Elton John- Nikita
  • Hanson- Penny and me
  • Nirvana- Polly
  • Kaiser Chiefs- Ruby
  • Tori Amos- Scarlet's walk

Hopefully the above list should give you some idea of how many songs use female names in their title. Naming a child after a favourite song is a popular tradition (hence my friend's name Jude), and if you're on the look-out for other song titles with girls' names in the title, you could try out the following sites:
