What does the name Rory stand for?
The name Rory means 'King of the Red Heads'
The name was given to him during his time with Rory Storm and The Hurricanes when Rory Storm insisted they all adopt stage names. "Ringo" came from his love for cowboy movies, and for wearing lots of rings; "Starr" came from his solo drumming spot with Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, billed as "Starr Time". (His family and close friends call him Richie.)
