      I have always regarded Jude as Judy.

      Simon Smith and his Amazing Dancing Bear.

      The Postman Pat theme (although Pat is usually a female abbreviation).

      How many songs that have boys' names are sung by females?

          Is Chucke a boy or girl's name? - I can't tell which gender it is.

                Thanks for that - the thing is that hardly anyone has that name.

                  Excellent one, Richard - one assumes that Elton sung about someone with a boy's name because of his, shall we say, sexuality? (and I assume that this was certainly the case back in 1973?)

                  Mind you, I found it ironic when he realised "Kiss the Bride" when one thinks of the fact that he was front of the queue when same-sex marriages were legalised in 2014!

                  There was that disco song Fly Robin Fly, although I think they were singing about the bird in general rather than someone called Robin.

                    I was just looking at an old thread just now, and it mentioned that Dionne Warwick song Message to Michael (one assumes Message to Martha with a male name). I think it was a Bacharach composition.

                          Nikita is a woman's name - I knew someone female with that name.

                            I thought it was ONLY a female name

                              Some more I have thought of:

                              Olivia Newton-John sung a song called Sam in 1977 - one assumes it was a Samuel and not a Samantha. Keith "Grocer Jack" West also had a song called Sam although I believe that it was a different song to ONJ's.

                              Martha Reeves and the Vandellas had a song called Jimmy Mack.

                              The Undertones also had song with that name - Jimmy, Jimmy.
