Musical tastes make magical names
From Roxanne to Delilah... give your baby the star quality with these names.
Topping the charts in music and with mums
Taking a look at our top 100 popular name list both Ruby (Ruby Ruby Ruby – Kaiser Chiefs) and Grace (Grace Kelly – Mika) have made the top ten in the pop charts in the past few years as they both continue to top our name lists too.
If you’re looking for something a bit more retro, the Beatles wrote a lot of songs that featured names in the titles. How about: ‘Sexy Sadie’, Eleanor Rigby, Martha, my Dear, Lovely Rita or Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds?
Rock chicks love
Little rock chicks might suit Lola, (The Kinks), Layla (Eric Clapton) or Maggie May (Rod Stewart). And 80s fans may prefer Eileen (Come on Eileen – Dexys Midnight Runners) or Billie (Billie Jean – Michael Jackson).
As an alternative you could always go for the name of your favourite singer rather than a song too – Florence (Florence and the Machine), Adele and Emeli (Sande) are all names with a modern feel that are continuing to rise in popularity as their fame grows.
