This shop is the source of Bono’s name. Already early on Bono was member in a youth group called 'Lypton Village', with Gavin Friday and Guggi among others (see Bono Biography). One evening they hung out in O'Connell und Earl Street and decided that 'Bono Vox' would be quite a good name for Bono - 'Bona Vox' means ‘good voice’ in Latin. At one point the ‘Vox’ was lost, and since then Paul Hewson calls himself simply Bono.
