To help with the Rosemary's Baby thing ... I think Annie is suggesting that rather than be an opposite to Mary's baby, ie. Jesus, having the mother of the son of the devil being named Rosemary is merely a Mary-like name. This points up the fact that he is, in fact, the son of the Devil not just the freakie looking son of a whacked out housewife.

I think.

And FWIW, I think the allegation that Brown Eyed Girl is about anal sex is latter-day bullshit. It's not like there aren't any actual girls with brown eyes for heavens sake, and that the eyes are an outstanding feature, worthy of writing songs about (see: all the other songs alluding to eyes).
