Band Name Origins:

  • "Jesus" (say "Hey-suss") is the most popular male first name in the Spanish language. "Jones" is the most common surname in English. "Jee-suss Jones" sounded better phonetically hence the band name. Submitted by: Perverse 1993
  • On a vacation to Spain, the band decided to change their name. They were Brits (referred to as "Joneses") surrounded by people named Jesus (pronounced "Hey-Zeus"). Submitted by: Brian Kelly
