When reading "Ring" first time in the e-mail subject, I also thought it
would be about the algebraic structure with that name.

Since the name Ring is already taken by an ubiquitous mathematical

Is Necklace a known name for this data structure? If not Ring, I was
thinking Circular might be an appropriate name.
I'm not sure if there's a canonical name, except perhaps "circular
queue". Necklace is cute, though Circular or CircleQueue might be
better. I'd also advise strongly against using Ring in order to avoid
confusing nomenclature. (Loop should be avoided for similar reasons.)
CircularList seems fine to me. Necklace is nice but might be missed when
someone searches for that data structure on Hackage.
