Weird Names of Music Performer's Children:

  • Elijah Bob Patricus Guggi Q Hewson - Elijah, I can deal with. Bob, to honor Bono's dad, fine. Patricus? Sorry, Bono. Nobody speaks Latin anymore. Guggi? Bono, if you wanted to honor your childhood friend, you could have used his real name, which is Derek. Q? There's absolutely no way that can be justified. Submitted by: beau99
  • Jordan Lena - Jordan was named after one of her dads friends who is a boxer or something, not sure where the Lena is from Submitted by: Jen
  • Memphis Eve - Not sure if she keeps the Memphis part of her name. I think she uses the Eve part(Bono is always referring to her as "Evie"). Anyway, she was born at the 7th minute of the 7th hour of the 7th day of the 7th month(or something like that) and the middle of seven is thats how she got the Eve part. Submitted by: Someone
  • Elijah Bob Patricius Guggi Q - It seems when his 3rd child/1st son was born, Bono thought he wouldn't have any more kids (or at least any more boys) and that's why he gave him all the boy names he liked. See when he had a second son _John Abraham_he kept his name short. Submitted by: Aurora
