Lawrence wrote the song for Linda Eastman, who was the 5-year-old daughter of his attorney, Lee Eastman. Linda would later become the first wife of Beatle's singer Paul McCartney.

And if you're wondering what the difference is between "popular" and "trendy," well, popular names are favored all the time while trendy names (like Linda) are wildly favored for a relatively short period of time.
