TWIST News: Zayn Malik Reveals What Liam Payne Wanted to Name One Direction!


Harry Styles came up with One Direction's awesome name, but it turns out it wasn't Liam Payne's first choice! When trying to come up with a name for the band, Liam had other ideas. "There were some really embarrassing ones that Liam came up with, like USP...Unique Selling Point," Zayn Malik spills. Thankfully, Louis Tomlinson spoke up and said, "That is the WORST! Although to be fair, you have to be brave even to mention it in the first place." We're so glad they went with One Direction!

Do you think USP would have been a good name for the band? Or do you like One Direction better? Tell us in the comments below! And don't forget to pick up the July issue of TWIST to see what it's really like to date the guys of 1D!

Xoxo, Rachel
