"Amanda" Don Williams/Waylon Jennings/Boston It's not generally the first name one thinks of when one thinks of female names. She seems to be more popular in Hollywood -- Amanda Bynes, Amanda Seyfried, Amanda Peet, Amanda Plummer, Amanda Blake, Melrose Place's Amanda Woodward and Dr. Bellows' wife on I Dream of Jeannie -- than in everyday life. But she's climbed the music charts several times, most notably via Boston's 1986 No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 and Waylon Jenning's 1979 country No. 1, which was previously recorded in 1973 by Don Williams.
"Maria" Marty Robbins/Blondie Possibly the most popular woman of song titles, though I doubt they're all named for the same one. Women called Maria have provided the titles to songs from both West Side Story and The Sound of Music as well as tracks by former teen heartthrob Ricky Martin and current one Justin Bieber. That Maria sure gets around!
"Mickey's Monkey" The Miracles/"Mickey" Toni Basil OK, I'm cheating here. The Miracles' 1963 Top 10 was actually about the dance ("The Monkey"), not the guy, but who would have expected the name of the most beloved Disney character to pop up again as the title of a one-hit wonder's chart-topper 19 years later?
"Patches" Dickey Lee/Jerry Reed A unisex name so unusual it could only exist in songs, both tearjerkers in which main characters not always named Patches die by the end of the final verse.
