Thought 176: The Beatles: What's in a Name?


The Beatles band name was originally spelt the Beatals. 

The Beat-les is a great name for a Rock band because it has the word 'beat' in it, as in rhythm, as well as in the sense of defeating the competition in the music trade: Beat-All.

And of course the beetle is a ubiquitous black insect which fits in well with the black tie outfits worn by the band members early on.
