Band Name Origins:

  • It is true that the band is named after Jon, but he never changed his name (officially) to "Bon Jovi". Submitted by: Hannah
  • Jon's last name is Bongiovi. So they mixed it up a little and became "Bon Jovi" and personally i have always wondered if this has caused any onimosity within the band. Evidently not, they've been together 20 years or whatever. But they rock! Submitted by: Sydney
