Featured Song Story *

What are the most common female names in songs? Well, Mary’s a Grand Old Name, as we are told in the song written by George M. Cohan in 1905. Paul McCartney sung about his mother, Mary, in his 1970 song Let It Be. And, it’s a Jolly Holiday with Mary as we hear in the song from the 1964 Disney movie musical, Mary Poppins.

Over the decades, more songs have been written about a girl named Mary than any other female name, at least by our count. There must be more … so send us your suggestions after reviewing our list. Currently there are 43 songs for Mary on our big list on and that’s about twice as many as for the second most common name. Check out the full list of Top Female Names in Song, titles or lyrics, on our home page. Clicking on a name will take you directly to the big list section with songs for that name.

The top 40 Love Songs with a
girl's name in the title

Top 40 songs named after girls, with female names in the title. This list only includes songs of love and affection for that special girl, wife, mother, sister, friend, lover or wannabe lover. Without regard to genre (Rock, R&B, Country, Punk, Rap, etc) each of these songs became a chart topping hit; all but a few were top ten songs and many were number 1 hits! These love songs all have a woman's first name in the title and it is a song about her; not about a place, animal, thing, road, car or boat. Song titles only have first names, no last names and none with multiple names. Here’s our list of the top 40 best love songs with a girl’s name in the title!

My thoughts and comments*
What is so special about girls name songs? Who writes such a song and why? These are songs written about a friend, mother, sister, daughter, wife, girlfriend or any girl or woman we care about. Someone cared enough about this girl to write a song about her.

Is there anything more important than music written about a key person in our life; a person we admire, love, despise or cherish? Sure, some of these songs are just plain fun or silly, but usually they are written about real people and real strong feelings. Listen to Steve Perry singing Oh Sherrie.

I first became interested in this kind of song as a young teenager. I remember feeling the pain of unrequited love when Paul Anka sang about his yearning for Diana in 1957. And I remember the heart-break sadness of Ray Peterson in 1960 who sang Tell Laura I Love Her

And just like when we read a book, watch a movie, or listen to a story, these songs touch our hearts. We can easily relate to the words and feelings of the song; we feel the love. We smile, sigh, and cry right along with the singer.

I hope you enjoy this list of songs with girls names in the title or lyrics and please feel free to email me with suggestions for songs I missed or corrections to anything I post.

Charity:  It’s been said that it takes a village to raise a child. I also think the village would be well served to ensure the health and well-being of the child’s mother and to assure a healthy birth so that the child has a better chance of reaching responsible adulthood. This we do, not just for the benefit of the child, but for the enrichment of the entire village. Happy, healthy, productive people benefit all of society, and it starts with a healthy childbirth and happy mother. djd
