Baby names with a musical influence!?

i need baby name ideas that are inspired by music preferably classic rock like of the sixties and seventys.

for example if i end up having a boy his name is going to be Lennon.

I need girl names!


I am very familar with that era in music and I am a big fan which is why i am considering naming my child after influences of that time. I dont need to "study up" Im just looking for some more ideas to go with the ones i already have! Theres no need to be rude!

Update 2:

Annnnd im not just looking to name her after a "60's or 70's rocker" mostly im looking for inspriation from thier songs! roxanne was a very good suggestion

    Let's think about this for a minute.

    You want to name your children after 60s-70s rockers, but you can't name ONE female artist from that era?

    Does it strike you as a good idea to get a series of names you may not be able to associate with anyone, from people you've never met?

    Before coming up with your theme, you should probably do a little research on it.

    I can think of quite a number:

    Carly (Simon)

    Carole (King)

    Stevie (Nicks)

    Christie (McVie)

    Janis (Joplin)

    Grace (Slick)

    Joan (Baez)

    Joni (Mitchell)

    Study up.

    Lucy like "in the sky with diamonds"

    Roxanne was a good suggestion



    I know there's a lot more but I'll never think of them while trying too hard.

    Joni (as in Mitchell)

    Stevie (as in Nicks) (i think this would be rad on a girl)

    But I agree with an above poster, why would you choose a name for a girl that you can't even identify with?

    I love the name Lennon. I was planning on using it, but now it's on the top 1000 list, and that makes me sad.



    Melody - Cute nickname Mel


    Cadence - Cute nickname Cady
