    The name isn't being change to LoVendoЯ.
    It's just that pronunciation is the same as Lavender.
    And the group name stands for "Love" and "Vendor" combined together

    Why aren't there a bass player and drummer? Just two guitar players doesn't make a band complete. XD But yeah, it's still interesting.
