The Beatles were originally named Johnny and the Silver Beetles or just The Silver Beetles. They got the idea to be The 'Beetles' from Buddy Holly's band The Crickets.

Their first drummer was called Thomas Moore. Pete Best was the son of the owner of Liverpool's Casbah Club, where The Beatles played occasionally. Andy White was a session drummer who played on the second version of "Love Me Do".

Before Ringo joined Johnny Hutchinson (of Liverpool band the Big Three) also sat in for them a number of times when they were between full-time drummers.
