Ever wondered why some songs have girls' names for song titles? We noticed that, too, and decided to do a little bit of researching for you. 

 1  "Diana" by One Direction

Written by Julian Bunetta, Jamie Scott, John Ryan, Louis Tomlinson, and Liam Payne, "Diana" is one of the songs featured in One Direction's Midnight Memories album. In an interview with Perez Hilton, Louis revealed that they were actually trying out names for the chorus. "We [were] actually working with a few different names for the chorus, and the top name originally was Joanna," he said. "Which is actually quite close to my mum's name, and it felt a little weird so we changed it to Diana."

 2  "Oh Cecilia (Breaking My Heart)" by The Vamps

Adapted from Simon & Garfunkel's song "Cecilia," "Oh Cecilia" by The Vamps is featured in their album Meet The Vamps. The original song was named after St. Cecilia, the patron saint of music in the Catholic religion.

 4  "Chloe (You're the One I Want)" by Emblem 3

Rumor has it that "Chloe" is Emblem 3's love letter to former The X Factor host Khloe Kardashian whom the guys became fond of during their time on the reality talent show.

 5  "Jenny" by The Click Five

Released from their second album Modern Minds and Pastimes, The Click Five's "Jenny" was rumored to be about the band's friendship with South Korean singer Park Bom whose English name was Jenny. However, Ben Romans explained that Jenny was just a name that went well with the song.

 6  "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson

One of Michael Jackson's biggest hits referred to band groupies he and his brothers encountered while they were still in the group The Jackson 5. But according to his biographer's theory, the song was about his real-life experience of a woman who wrote to him and informed him that he was the father of her twins. 

 7  "Hey There Delilah" by Plain White T's

While no one really knows if the band's song was named and written after someone in particular, there is no denying that "Hey There Delilah" remains as one of the sweetest love songs that was ever made.
