It’s a Beatles baby name bonanza!

The Fab Four baby names

One of the most obvious ways to find a baby name inspired by The Beatles is to name your child after the icons themselves! John, Paul and George are all great traditional boy names that never go out of style. You can also consider James, which is Paul McCartney's first name as Paul is actually his middle name.

John has two children, Julian and Sean, while George has one child named Dhani.
