My dog was named Martha.  After Paul's dog, Martha.  Which of course provided the name for a song.

I think she was thinking of that scene in AHDN, where the guy finally stands up for himself by telling the other one "It's not I'm taller than you, you're shorter than me."

Now, make like a tree and BEAT IT! (I always loved Biff's mixed phrases.) — Make like an egg and scram…ble?

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:

 


Wow, my mom was born around the same time and her name is Michelle, but it is spelled Michel… I need to ask my grandfather if that was the inspiration now, I never thought of that!

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


Oh yeah! Go Nigel!

I had heard that. Now it makes me wonder if Nigel was quite the prima-donna doggie-woggie and was the inspiration for John's poem.

You know, I love that bit though in the play: Ringo chases John. The dog chases Ringo, and George, attached by the dog's leash has to chase after the dog. For some reason I always think of that story about the Golden Goose.

My violin is named Paul for many different reasons. The first one though was after the St. Paul's orchestral suite by Holtz, which our student orchestra teacher from 1st semester absolutely loved.

I know a lady who name her cats Lennon and McCartney

I named my car Lucy, don't judge me. I know naming cars is an old thing, but I like it. The other car we had I named The Grey Lady from Harry Potter.

The friend who ushered in my Beatle fan resurgence (and probably regrets it) named one of her cats Penny Lane.

Paul used to call himself Paul Ramon right? Apparently the Ramones got their name from that.

And I THINK the band Hello Goodbye got their name from the song. Apparently they covered some Beatles and John Lennon stuff so it just has to be!

Not named after the Beatles BUT defnitely related:

The band Death Cab For Cutie got their name from the song with the same name by The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band after having watched Magical Mystery Tour.

 

And I haven't even mentioned the 2 shows in Holland yet! We have this show called All You Need Is Love, which is about people who send in a letter with a story and then they're getting reunited with their loved one or can apologize for something or whatever. It's really emotional sometimes and they go all over the world to find them. The theme song used to be All You Need Is Love, but now it's that crap song by Will I Am and Eva Simons, This Is Love -.-

And then we also have a show called HelloGoodbye, which is basically just people on an airport saying goodbye to other people who leave by plane and then they can tell their story. Never watched it, but it seems boring. And of course it has Hello Goodbye playing in the background all the time.

I watched MMT with my mom recently,and when she heard the song, the first thing she said was, "Isn't Death Cab for Cutie a band?"

That was exactly what I thought when I first watched it! I was like ''Oooooh, that's where they got that strange name from''

Me too. I use to think it was a random name like My Chemical Romance, but it made more sense after MMT.
