Of the four songs presented by the Chuck Berry trio during their first recording session, Leonard Chess decided to produce 'Ida May' inspired by a traditional American song 'Ida Red,' greatly surprising Berry who pinned his hopes on his blues songs. Chess expanded the band to a quintet with bass and maracas to provide a bigger beat and thought about changing the song title along with some lines in the lyrics as he felt 'Ida May' would evoke rural associations. The guys did not puzzle too long over this task and took the name from a box of mascara that caught their eye but changed the spelling to avoid copyright claims from the brand. Indeed, Maybellene and Ida May not only have the same number of syllables but are sung in a very similar manner.

May be interesting: the german collectors' magazine Oldie Markt has started a many-part worldwide discography and story about Chuck Berry. The first four parts are out now. Seems very detailed. You can take a look at this here: http://www.bielekat.info/om-mag/om-02-18-fb/index.html
