* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', main character Lucy and her family have names from songs linked to Music/TheBeatles: while she and her father take their names from "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "Hey Jude" respectively, her mother shares her name with EricClapton's "Layla", a song inspired by an unrequited love who happened to be GeorgeHarrison's wife. Other than Lucy's own, however, the author has yet to acknowledge the reference.
