Do you like “Rhiannon”? Are you more in tune with “Billie Jean”?
A reader recently e-mailed me and asked for some baby name suggestions. Specifically, she wanted names from classic rock songs.
I’m somewhat of a classic rock fan, so I was able to come up with a few names off the top of my head (like “Angie” by the Rolling Stones and “Amanda” by Boston). After about ten, though, I was stuck.
So for more ideas I skimmed through a few online lists featuring thousands of song-monikers from all types of music. I ended up sending the reader a whole bunch of name suggestions, and I’m just waiting to hear back about whether she found any of them helpful.
What about you: If you were going to use song titles as a source of baby name inspiration, what genre(s) of music would you check out first? (Rock, pop, R&B, jazz, rap, folk, country, metal, punk…?)
