Tom originally came up with the name Blink, he said it stood for Boys Lusting Incredibly Nude Kids, and that he used to think it was hilarious.

They changed it to Blink-182 because of the Scottish band Blink, the 182 is the number of time Al Pacino says the work "fuck" in the movie Scarface.

Tom, Mark, and Travis were originally known as just "Blink" until a Japanese band already named Blink threatened to sue if they did not change their band name. Therefore, 182 was added. The three say 182 was the amount of times "f***" was said in Scarface.

Mark and Tom were skateboarding and Tom came up with blink. There was a band with the same name so they had to add the 182. The number has no significance. They just picked a random number and they made up different stories for how they got it. Really, it was just random.

They first choose there name to be Blink when Mark and Tom were skateboarding Tom said" how about Blink?" but they were threatened by a Irish band named Blink if they didn't change there name they would sue. So they choose the number 182 because in the movie Scarface they say the "F" word 182 times
