10 boys’ names from songs

The second in my names from songs blogs. Finding cool songs with boys’ names is hard! I hope you find some inspiration here. If you have any suggestions of your own, do add them in the comments below, I’d love to hear from you.

Song To Woody by Bob Dylan


“Hey, hey Woody Guthrie, I wrote you a song
‘Bout a funny ol’ world that’s a-comin’ along”

Right Said Fred by Bernard Cribbins


One of my favourite comedy songs – you can’t beat a bit of Bernard Cribbins!

“Right, ” said Fred, “Both of us together
One each end and steady as we go.”

Oliver’s Army by Elvis Costello


“Oliver’s army is here to stay
Oliver’s army are on their way”

You Can Call Me Al by Paul Simon


Love the video for this song, with Chevy Chase and the bongos.

“If you’ll be my bodyguard
I can be your long lost pal
I can call you Betty
And Betty, when you call me, you can call me Al”

Tommy Gun by The Clash


“You can be a hero in an age of none
Tommy gun
I’m cutting out your picture from page one”

Alejandro by Lady Gaga



Mickey by Toni Basil


An 80s classic.

“Oh Mickey, you’re so fine
You’re so fine you blow my mind, hey Mickey,
Hey Mickey”

Hey Jude by The Beatles


Here I am with my Beatles again.

“And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain
Don’t carry the world upon your shoulders”

Johnny B. Goode by Chuck Berry


“Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
But he could play a guitar just like a-ringin’ a bell”

Jimmy Mack by Martha & The Vandellas


“Hey, Jimmy, Jimmy
Oh, Jimmy Mack, when are you comin’ back”
