Loney, Dear

As one magazine put it, this name is the bane of spellcheckers everywhere. Also, it makes no sense. There are many good nonsensical band names, but I don't think this is one of them. I can't find an explanation of the name's origins, but I have learned the guy who comprises 100% of Loney, Dear is Swedish. As someone with Swedish heritage (and because English is clearly his second language), I award him a pity point.

The title of his next album is Loney, Noir. Couldn't he have come up with a straightforward title to balance out the confusing name?

Loney, Dear: 2.5 (includes pity point)
