Jesse Rutherford explained:
"Well, I wanted the name The Neighbourhood, I just thought it was cool and, you know, when you’re in a band,
often if you want to name your band something, you’ll check other places on the internet to see if somebody
else already has the name, and somebody already had it the other way, the normal spelling!
So I was
like “F*ck!” and was thinking of other ways to do it, and then our manager - he’s from New Zealand
originally, so he’s had a lot of overseas experience, like, internationally he’s worked with a lot
of companies and people, so he understands the whole world a lot - so then he suggested, “Hey! Why
not the UK spelling of it?” and it worked out really well."
