I think a Gallagher from Oasis named his son Lennon.

"And in the End the Love you take is equal to the Love you make"
"When I was a robber *Piano Chord* in Boston Place"
"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"
"Pete may be the best, but Ringo is the star"
Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"

Yep. Liam named his son Lennon. Jesus, his kids are really butt ugly, just like their father.

 

A Dutch DJ named his son Lennon too.

Not so much named, but Wakko from The Animaniacs cartoon, voice was model after John Lennon's. I didn't find that out until this past Monday. Again, another I did not connect with off the bat.

All up and down Matthew Street (where the Cavern is) there are bars, shops, cafés and even a hotel to do with The Beatles (Hard Day´s Night Hotel, rooms starting at something like £500 a night!). I think there´s a Lennon´s bar and a place called Rubber Soul as well.

Although it´s to be expected, I think it´s a bit pathetic how people try and earn money so much from The Beatles name.

There's a Dutch band called Rigby. I think you can guess where they got their name from.

Around '83 when I was enamoured of Tangerine Dream, I read somewhere that they took their name from "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", and I remember being briefly unsure whether I'd been mishearing the "Tangerine trees..." lyric all along! I'm still not sure whether I just read incorrect information, or whether they took the "Tangerine" from that lyric and the "Dream" from elsewhere. (Or hmm, maybe they just misheard the lyric themselves, English not being their first language after all.)

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967

Didn't one of them have a Ringo voice?

By now this isn't new news to most of us, but I thought I'd add it here for future reference.

John had a tarantula named after him. Here's a conversation about it.
