John Lennon formed a skiffle group, best known as "The Quarrymen" in 1957, which Paul McCartney and George Harrison later joined. In chronological order, the names that band went through were "The Black Jacks", "The Quarrymen", "Johnny and the Moondogs", "The Silver Beetles", "Long John and the Silver Beetles" and the "The Beatles".
The Quarrymen
I'm not sure of all of the names, so I can't tell you how many there were, however, some names included

1 - The Quarrymen

2 - The Beetles

3 - The Silver Beetles

4 - Johny and The moondogs

5 - Long John and the Beetles

6 - The Beatles.

I think that's all, but I'm not entirely sure.
The Quarrymen, The Beetles, The Silver Beetles, The Beatals, Johnny and the Moondogs
They were originally the QuarryMen (named for their school), then became Long John Silver and the Silver Beetles, then Silver Beatles, then the Beatles.

They had a number of names before they settled on Beatles; Lennon's original band was the Quarrymen (all the members attended Quarry Bank School).

They went through the Rainbows, Long John and the Silver Beetles, the Silver Beetles, Beetles and, finally, Beatles.
