Does anyone know if American actress Molly Ringwald related in some way to German actress Monika Ringwald?

Monica Ringwald is an English-German actress possibly best known for her bit roles in many British sexploitation movies in the 1960s and 1970s. She began her career as a nude model in British magazines and was on the Benny Hill Show.  She retired from acting in 1978.

Molly Ringwald’s paternal grandfather was Ferman Verneal Ringwald (the son of Raymond Ruby Ringwald and Maude Monroe). Ferman was born in Oklahoma. Raymond was the son of Jacob Frederick Ringwald, who was of German descent.

I suppose it's possible, but if they are, I suspect they are many times removed and have likely never met.  I don't know how common the name Ringwald is.
