Ringo Starr's real name!
« on: June 22, 2007, 01:52:13 AM »

I just learned this today!

It's not Ringo Starr, it's not even Richard Starkey! According to Ringo, ...


 "My real name is Parkin, not Starkey. My grandad was named Johnny Parkin. When my grandfather's mother remarried, which was pretty shocking in those days, she married a Starkey, so my grandfather changed his name to Starkey, too. (I went to have my family tree done in the Sixties, but I could only trace back two generations - and they couldn't find me! I had to go to my family to find out, and even they hadn't wanted to say anything in case the press found out.) "

Amazing!

Thx Alexis...wow, I never knew this. Parkin....hmmmm. I'm so used to Starr or Starkey, it's kinda weird to get your mind around another name.. but no matter what his name is he's still Ringo to us all :)

Ringo's late mother was born Elsie Gleave and was one of 14 children reared in the Toxteth area of Liverpool. While working in a local bakery she met Richard Starkey and the couple were married in 1936. Their son Richard Starkey was born on 7 July 1940. The couple were divorced in 1943. Elsie later married Harry Graves in 1953. If Ringo's real name is Parkin, why are his children called Zak Starkey, Jason Starkey and his wife Barbara Starkey? The answer seems to lie in the fact that he named his daughter Lee Parkin Starkey. Parkin wasadded to thename as it was the reintroduction of a former Starkey family name.
