Most sung about girl/guy?

Just curious: What name has been the most sung about in all history?

For example:
Tommy Tutone's 8675309 would be a vote for the name "Jenny."
The Rolling Stone's Ruby Tuesday would be a vote for "Ruby."

What else?

I'm thinking "Jesus Christ", especially if you include other languages (especially Latin).

Mary! I don't need to give any examples, I know you are thinking of at least three songs with Mary right now.

As far as a guy name... John? Joe? Wilbur? I can't think of any.

I would imagine there's tons of songs about "Johnny" ...although at the moment, I can only think of three.

I'm guessing Bob Dylan's name has been dropped in song more times than just about anyone else

God. After that, Bob Dylan.
I'm not kidding, most "serious" songwriters mention Dylan at some point in one of their songs.

"Father" and especially "Mother" seem to be in a fair share of songs. But they sort of don't count...

How about songs that don't sing about a particular person, just a name. So exclude Dylan, Jesus Christ/God, Mom and Dad, etc. Also, could y'all post the names and artists of songs you think of? I think it'd be neat to compile a list of these if it hasn't already been done before.

By the way, the only song about "Mary" I can think of is "Mary Had a Little Lamb."

I'm agreeing on this one. If not jesus it would probably be god.
