Their name is actually an anagram.
Wayne Sermon explained:
"Our original name was a phrase we all liked, and we were gonna make that phrase the band's name until
we randomly switched the order of all the letters a few times and came out with Imagine Dragons."
When asked what the original phrase was, he said:
"We actually don't tell anybody what the original phrase is. We haven't told our fans or anything.
It's kind of nice to have a little mystery. When you're in the spotlight and so exposed it's nice to keep
something to yourself. And it's fun for fans to try and figure out what it is. We get all kinds of guesses.
We never tell them if they're right or not. Maybe at some point we'll reveal what it is.
