Interesting Personal Facts: Jon Bon Jovi’s real name is John Francis Bongiovi. The original name for his band was going to be Johnny Electric, but a friend suggested he take a cue from Van Halen and name the band after the band’s leader, which he obviously did. The band’s first big hit – You Give Love a Bad Name – was almost given to the Canadian band Loverboy to record, but Bon Jovi (wisely) decided to record it himself.
