Why is the band U2 called U2?

In the Cold War the American Airforce used an Airplane called a U-2. It was used as a spy plane and could take photos from extreme heights. They were flown many times over Cuba so the Americans had some idea of what the Soviet Union and Cuba were doing in Cuba at the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis that nearly ended the world. On May 1st one of these was shot down and was a great embarrassment to America as they had to admit to their surveillance. The Band U2 got it's name from that aircraft.
U2 are named after the US Air Force spy plane (still in operation) that was extensively used during the cold war. In the 1960's Captain Gary Powers was flying one over the Soviet Union when he was shot down and imprisoned.
It was the name of an American-made spyplane in the 1950's and 1960's....
In U2's early stages, there was a friend that was in a band before themselves. They asked him for some band names, and he gave them 6. They chose U2, because apparently it was the best out of all 6. They said that the name didn't pop out at them, it just started to grow on them over time.
Ask Bono!

What was the significance of the U-2 incident?

On May 1st of 1960, an American U2 spy plane was shot down over the Soviet Union. This incident began a downward spiral of spy v. spy type diplomacy that directly led to collapse of the Four Power Paris Summit, between then President of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, United Kingdom Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan and French President Charles de Gaulle. This was mostly due to the fact that Eisenhower refused to apologize over the incident. When the spy plane was first shot down, the United States at first denied the incident making many false claims before to admit the truth of the incident when the Soviet government produced remains of the plane and the pilot, Francis Gary Powers, who was still alive. Powers was convicted by the Soviets of espionage and served close to two years of hard labor in a soviet prison before being released and sent home in exchange for the "hallow nickel" Soviet spy Rudolf Abel.
