Biography: One day Johnny Marr and Morrissey were sitting in Morrissey's house when Morrissey started scratching the worlds "The Smiths" on a large piece of cardboard. Morrissey hadn't intended the name to stick, but Johnny loved the name. It was the idea that the name was simple that made the name enticing for the group. "Smith is the most common name in the universe. It is inoffensive." states Marr.
