No, they need to be real people who featured in Beatles lyrics.

Like Mr. Kite. Or Mr. Henderson. Or Eleanor Rigby.

Since we are up to Abbey Road (nice one, DrB), wasn't Polythene Pam a real person?

IMS, I believe her name was Pat.

There was a Pat and John did meet her, back in '62 or '63 (i forget which).

From wiki

"That was me, remembering a little event with a woman in Jersey, and a man who was England's answer to Allen Ginsberg…I met him when we were on tour and he took me back to his apartment and I had a girl and he had one he wanted me to meet. He said she dressed up in polythene, which she did. She didn't wear jack boots and kilts, I just sort of elaborated. Perverted sex in a polythene bag. Just looking for something to write about." The song is sung in a very strong Liverpudlian "Scouse" accent.

Polythene is a British variant of the word polyethylene, a plastic material. The name 'Polythene Pam' came from the nickname of an early Beatles' fan from the Cavern Club days, named Pat Hodgett (now Dawson), who would often eat polythene. She became known as 'Polythene Pat'.She said in an interview, "I used to eat polythene all the time. I'd tie it in knots and then eat it. Sometimes I even used to burn it and then eat it when it got cold."

Since this is where this conversation about people who are named in Beatles songs developed, I will put this post here. I collected all the names, threw in some more I thought about, and grouped them by album. All four Beatles are found somewhere in a song a-hard-days-night-john-1a-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-george-10ahdn_ringo_09

If anyone thinks of any real person named in a Bealtes song that has been missed, let me know, and I will add them to this post to keep it all together.

Live At The BBC
Matchbox = John (Lennon) and Ringo (Starr)

Beatles for Sale
Honey Don't = George (Harrison)

Revolver
Taxman = Wilson (Harold) & Heath (Edward)
Eleanor Rigby = Eleanor Rigby (See Joe's page for more on this name and Father McKenzie)
Doctor Robert = Doctor Robert (Freymann)

Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds = Lucy (Vodden née O'Donnell)
Being for the Benefit of Mr Kite! = Mr. Kite (William) & The Hendersons (John and Agnes) & Pablo Fanques (His real name was William Darby)

Magical Mystery Tour
I Am The Walrus = Edgar Allan Poe & Lucy in the sky gets a mention

The Beatles (White Album)
Dear Prudence = Prudence (Farrow)
Glass Onion = Paul (McCartney)
I'm So Tired = Sir Walter Raleigh
Julia = Julia (Lennon)
Yer Blues = Dylan (Bob)
Revoultion 1 = Chairman Mao (Zedong)

Abbey Road
Polythene Pam = Polythene Pam (Pat Dawson née Hodgett)
She Came In Through The Bathroom Window = *

Let It Be

*This may be a stretch, but quit in "quit the police department" comes from Eugene Quits.
