The band's original name, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., was suggested to the pair as a joke. When asked by NASCAR.com's David Caraviello about the name, Zott stated, "The name for us was just a way to identify our crazy new project that had no limitations. People have no idea how we are going to sound, and so it gives them a reason to actually take some time to listen to the music." According to ESPN The Magazine, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. is a fan of Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. The band emailed him to assure him they were not making fun of him and sent him a few samples of their music.
