Band Name Origins:

  • In an interview , Dunn, the band's frontman, revealed the meaning of the band's name. He said that when he was about 14 years old, there was a video game he had played called "Too Extreme" on the Sony Playstation. It required the player to create a name for the character. He got the first name from Tony Hawk. "Nelson" he got from a boot repair store in his hometown: Nelson Boot Repair. Submitted by: Emi

If Groups Combined, Their Names Might Be:

Jordy Nelson
Jordy combined with Hawk Nelson
Why not a French (then-)four-year-old who charted #1 in his native France with a song in 1992 with a Canadian Christian pop punk band (who had a song line in French) to form the name of a pro football player
Submitted By: JeReMy
Tony Hawk
Tony Christie combined with Hawk Nelson
Hawk Nelson did take the "Hawk" from the man many believe is the best skateboarder ever, so why not? Also there are probably many people named "Christie Nelson" so this is the best "Tony" for the job, so if Hawk has a problem, they can use the second words as a new name.

Atlanta Hawks
Hawk Nelson combined with Atlanta Rhythm Section
A similar one has been done for the Falcons. Why not one for the Hawks? A combined name for the Braves coming soon.
