music monday vii

This week in music: names.

I find names extremely interesting. Each name is unique and each person has a reason for being named their name. Each name has its own separate meaning and a lot of thought is often put into naming something, whether it is a child or a pet or a brand new car. Personally, I have the hardest time choosing the perfect name for the characters in my stories and those are just completely made up people!

Here’s a link to a website that will tell you the meaning of your name, along with its history and popularity in case you’re curious about your own name. 

Whether the songs were written with specific people in mind, the band just liked the name, or there is some deeper symbolism going on,  here are seven songs with titles that have names in them for your week!

  1. Come on Eileen – Dexys Midnight Runners
  2. Kathleen – Catfish and the Bottlemen
  3. Ruby – twenty one pilots
  4. Anna Sun – Walk The Moon
  5. Anastasia – A Silent Film
  6. Emmylou – Vance Joy
  7. Ophelia – The Lumineers

Here is the spotify playlist for this week (minus the twenty one pilots song which is not on spotify because of management and copyright and all that fun stuff)

If anyone wants to share the meaning behind their name, feel free to do so in the comments.

Have a great week! xo
