Mabel & Ringo

I went to many recitals during the many years that Eddie studied guitar at the Third Street Music School. Every recital featured an uncharismatic, unskilled brother-and-sister act, two Korean kids named Mabel and Ringo. I always imagined that their immigrant parents chose Ringo out of the equivalent American options of John, Paul & George. In one of his lesser novels, Ford Madox Ford had an American businessman named Heck. If you were a reader whose English is incipient, might you unwittingly name your kid Bookie?

I wonder what ever became of Mabel & Ringo.
