What's wrong with asking a band about what their band name means or originates from?

Because it's usually information readily available on Wikipedia or any fan site. It shows that the interviewer hasn't done his/her research.

But aren't interviewers supposed to inquire info for the fans, not for the interviewer..?

This implies that you can't incorporate known facts into the interview/article without directly asking questions that you already know the answer to. Use All Time Low for an example. Instead of simply asking "where did you get your name from?", one could ask "I read that ou got your name from a lyric in Head on Collision by New Found Glory. Were there any band names you flirted with before All Time Low stuck?"

Yeah I get what you're saying. Thanks.
