Five on Friday is one year old. To join the party, go visit Travis at Trav's Thoughts for the easy instructions and to share some of your favorite music. Happy Anniversary Travis.
Is there any standard female name not enshrined in time? Here we go with a salute to the names that their parents gave them. Mine attacked me by the Scots while still too young to defend myself with Janet Jamieson Durward White. So we kick off the set with Damn It Janet
Now my mother was Mary Ellen. She would have loved Ry Cooder, so here is her signature song: Maria Elena
One of my favorite Broadway shows and eventual movie musicals is On A Clear Day which contains a great song about the woman from a past life: Melinda
Now on to one of my favorite movies, favorite songs, and favorite singers: Laura sung by Frank Sinatra
I wanted to name my daughter Laura after the above song, but for some reason her father objected so we settled on Lanisa. I got my own way, sort of, because she has spent her life being known as Lani. Mothers being what they are I always hear Harry Owens and Sweet Leilani (Heavenly Flower) whenever I call her name and the one place she has always wanted to go is Hawaii.
So if you have a favorite "Girl's Name" in song, let me know.
