• Bono's real name is Paul David Hewson. He was born in Ballymun, Dublin, Ireland on May 10th 1960. He got his original nickname, "Bono Vox", from the name of a hearing aid store in Dublin (actually called "Bonavox"). Bonavox is latin for "good voice". The name Bono Vox was shortened to Bono sometime before U2's first album.
