It seems unlikely. I have a hard time taking the name 'bono' seriously, and I'm not even married to the fella.

Edge, on the other hand, is very appealing. If he was my wife I'd definitely refer to him as such.

Im almost certain Paul is rarely used in the house.

Maybe when she gets mad?

Paul Hewson! Come pick up all your underwear lying on the floor!

I assume his children call him da.

I think the bigger question, and one Im sure is on forum members minds, is does she call him bono in more intimate moments. I mean, how could you possibly do so and not fall about laughing?

That said, in my household, Im regularly referred to as LoveBucket. Or, indeed, Big Willy.

Why wouldnt she? Theyve been together since they were teenagers when the name started, and everyone on earth calls him that.

I think Bono even said once that his dad was the only one who called him Paul, so he didnt like when people would call him that thinking they were clever, as it just made him feel like he was in trouble for something.

What I don't understand is that Larry and Adam were not given ridiculous names as well.
To be fair they were in a rock band and were young, so Bono and The Edge is quite amusing if you can get away with it in their world which is different to most of us.

I don't think Bono and the Edge were given their names, rather the pretentious pricks let it be known to all and sundry that henceforward they should be known as Bono and the Edge.

In the Letterman docu Edge says Adam was nicknamed Mrs Burns. Larry was The Jam Jar.

Yeah and that honestly makes it pretty lame.  I think Bono was called that name when he was younger but then later wanted to bring it back and have everyone to call him it.  There's a scene in Killing Bono where Bono and Edge tell Gavin Friday their new names and he doesn't buy it.

I thought Bono's name had something to do with a hearing aid shop called Bono Vox when he was kid, and The Edge was Bono's humour of Dave Evans being someone who in a group who is around the edge and not the center of attention.

She and his close circle usually just call him 'B' I believe.
