Initially, Buddy Holly entitled the song "Cindy Lou," after his niece. But Jerry Allison asked to change the title of the song after his girlfriend, Peggy Sue Gerron. Holly had no problem with the name change. During the recording of the song, Allison struggled with the right beat. Buddy Holly wrote a sequel to the song named "Peggy Sue Got Married," which was released on a compilation album after his death. Rolling Stone ranked the song on their list of 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Holly wrote this about Peggy Sue Gerron, who was dating Holly's drummer with The Crickets, Jerry Allison. Holly was not involved with Peggy Sue, but liked the name for the song. Allison and Peggy Sue eventually got married, but divorced nine years later. At first, Holly was going to call this "Cindy Lo. Jerry Allison asked if the name could be changed as a favor to him. It probably wouldn't be heard outside of Lubbock, Texas anyway and it would really mean some brownie points for Jerry. Buddy had no problem with the name change
