Girls names from songs...

OH is a singer/songwriter and is sort of obsessed with song lyrics. He wants to choose a girls name that is from a song, but I'm not loving any of his list so far.
So can anyone give me girls names and the associated song or artist is known?

To start off, his faves are;
Martha (from a Tom Waits song)
Sarah (Thin Lizzie) and
Layla (Eric Clapton)

Any thoughts?

Rosalita (bruce springsteen).
Jolene (Dolly Parton, not sure who did the original?) - although you might not want that for a child's name!

Kayleigh (Marilion)
Valerie (either of the two!)
