A lot of people do not know that the PEGGY SUE that Buddy Holly sang about was a real person. Her name is now Peggy Sue Gerron. They were friends in high school and then she married Buddy Holly's friend and drummer Jerry Allison.  

With the exception of Yoko Ono, I wonder how many other non-famous women had incredibly famous songs NAMED after them. "My Sharona" comes to mind (Sharona Alperin)

Any suggestions?

Lucy O'Donell (now with different surname, I believe).

Lucy O'Donnell, the inspiration for Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, became Lucy Vodden. Unfortunately she died from lupus (a disease of the immune system) on 24 September 2009 at the age of 46.

The girl in She's Leaving Home, Melanie Cole (thanks Wiki as I had forgotten her name). Paul had met her previously in '63 when he was judging some contest or other but I doubt he remembered that when reading the article or writing the song. I would imagine there will be quite a lot of songs written about non-famous women.

Mona, James Taylor's song about his favorite pet pig who died.

Oh Mona, Mona:

So much of you to love,

a bit too much of you to take care of.

Mona, Mona:

Got too big to keep,

too damned old to eat.

When you was just a football at your mama's side,

reckon everyone figured you for a barbecue when you died...

"In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" by The Allman Brothers Band.

From WIKI...

The song is named after a headstone Dickey Betts saw at the Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon, Georgia; a place frequented by band members in their early days to relax and write songs. 

Hmmmm...a song named after an unknown woman's headstone. Where have I heard that before?a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Or Eleanor Bron and a shop with Rigby in the title and everything else is complete and utter coincidencea-hard-days-night-paul-5.

In 1947 Buddy Clark recorded a song called Linda, published the previous year by songwriter Jack Lawrence, and written in 1942 - while he was in the army - about the one-year-old daughter of his lawyer, Lee Eastman. While the Linda in question went on to become famous, and had many songs written about her by her future husband, Paul McCartney, the one-year-old Linda Eastman can hardly be considered famous. The recording made #1 on the US chart for two weeks.

I've sort of got one, though it doesn't have a name in the title, but it's Beatles-related so it's good. Jean Ray was a folk musician who performed with Jim Glover as Jim and Jean. She's also Brian Ray's sister (he's one of Paul McCartney's guitarists).

Neil Young wrote Cinnamon Girl about Jean, according to Brian.

I used to know a Penny Lane (she married and became Lane), but she got divorced, remarried and changed her name. Personally I'd have kept it.

'Cinnamon Girl' is one of my favorite Neil Young tunes. Nice to see the Beatley connection.
