I like the idea that the titles feminine name of Billie Joe is actually the name given to the child of the singer and Billy Joe. I do think that the child was born later after Billy's death and that the singer had not yet revealed to anyone but Billy that she was pregnant with his child at the time frame of the song.
Later when the child is born the singer gives the baby the name Billie Joe in memory of her lost love. But has anyone thought about the name Billie Joe and Bobbie Gentry.
