Dirty Diana

"Sara" is also a song by Starship and Fleetwood Mac

Natasha by Rufus Wainwright

Cindy by Johnny Cash and Nick Cave

I like "Whoever" as a name.

Farrah Field said...

My dad used to sing that Starship song to me, except he said Farrah instead of Sara.

I didn't know about that Rufus song. I'll definitely check it out.

Whoever is: Jennifer, Alison, Philipa Sue, Deborah, and Annabelle. Whoever might be better than Philipa Sue!
