Without couting character names (like in Across The Universe, where everybody was named after a freaking Beatle song), do you know something or someone named after the Beatles?

Well I know a few:

  • The Cranberries got their name after the line "Cranberry Sauce" in Strawberry Fields.
  • Gemma Aterton's character in James Bond's Quantum of Solace is named Strawberry Fields. I remember when I saw the movie on the theater, when Bond asks her "What's your name?" and she says "Just Fields" and later when Bond knows her name is Strawberry, I laughed saying "Strawberry Fields come on"
  • Actor Jude Law is named after the song Hey Jude!
  • One of the oldest skeleton ever found was named Lucy because in the camp she was found, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds was being played a lot.. OK I just checked wiki and her name is Lucy (Australopithecus).

I've personally known at least two girls named Michelle for the song. Plus several Michelles who MIGHT have been named for the song, all born around the right time, say 1966-75. Check out this graph that shows the name's popularity by year:

A long time ago, I worked with a young girl named Sadie. When I was introduced to her for the first time I said, "your parents must be Beatles fans". She said, "how did you know?"

And let's not forget John Lennon Liverpool Airport.

 

My sister's dog is Lucy after Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds. The funny thing is that, when my sister gets mad at her she says "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds quiet!!" a-hard-days-night-john-2

 

I met a few years ago a girl named Estrella. Her Dad, a drummer himself, was a huge Ringo fan. Her Mom doesn't like the Beatles so they chose a not that obvious name. (Estrella is in Spanish Star)a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

 

Now naming your son Max when you're a Macca fan is just AWESOME...

My firstborn sons name is going to be Richard. And I have reasons behind it.

When my grandfather was born my great-grandmother named him Richard. My great-grandfather decided he didn't like that name and changed it to J. Just J, no period. So ever since then, my great-grandmother has suggested that anyone in the family names their child Richard. She passed away not too long ago, like 3 years ago, and since then I dicided my son's name WILL be Richard.

And, I'm a Ringo fan.a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

My cat is named Nigel after the dog in the Shakespear skit they did. And yes the dog George has is actually named Nigel.

Yesterday when we were driving, I saw (actually, my mom saw) a "Bluejay Street." 🙂

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

There's a street not too far from my house that has a few other streets leading off from it. Some of those streets include McLennson Drive (I think it was Drive...), Rita Lane and Wood Road.

Last summer i saw a program named "31 minutos"(31 minutes a parody of 60 minutes) and the program is about news and aimed at children but adults also like it,it airs in Spanish and the one that says the news is named Tulio Triviño in that episode there is a mouse that appears at the program and at the end he asks Tulio:

Mouse:What does that song say when you play it backwards

Tulio: It says "I buried Tulio"

The following people thank Getting Better for this post:

Ahhh Girl
John, Paul, George and Ringo= The Beatles And i buried Tulio!
