Possible Misspelled Names:

These are the alternate spellings of the performer's name we've had to correct in submissions to amIright.

Dir en grey

Band Name Origins:

  • Dir is not the german word for coin ("Muenze" or "Geldstueck" is german for coin). Dir means "to you" (like I give it to you). So Dir en Grey would mean To you in Grey. Perhabs they mean Tier (Animal). But Animal in Grey???? ...no... A japanese girl told me: Because in japan they use different signs for writing, they need some so called phonetic notation for english names. And it's possible that the translation of Oscar Wildes Dorian Gray to japanese and the retranslation to english becomes Dir en Grey. Another fan of the group told me, they choose the name, just because it sounds good... ;) Submitted by: DeGfan
  • I read an interview ((I might still have it)) where Dir en grey was asked this very question. Die, of course being the talkative loudmouth he is, answered that it has no meaning and that one of them randomly came up with it. It's jsut coincidence that it might mean something in another language like a few rumors I've heard. Submitted by: Yashito
