    Off the top of my head, so subject to change. However...

    Visions of Johanna -Bob Dylan
    (Marie's the Name) His Latest Flame - Elvis
    In Memory of Elizabeth Reed (Fillmore version) - Allman Brothers Band
    For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her (Live version) - Simon & Garfunkel
    Celeste - Donovan (Supposedly named after the instrument rather than a person, but it should still qualify. I love the song at any rate.)

    Haha..I got familiar with the live version from around 1980....I liked that over the studio version. ....

    It was until years later that I understood that it wasn't about a girl...

    Then I guess A Boy Named Sue would fit the bill. But would April Come She Will make the cut.
