The name ‘Bon Iver’ is derived from the French for ‘good winter.’ The album was recorded in Justin Vernon’s home town of Eau Claire in Wisconsin, where the temperature rarely rises above freezing in winter. The Calgary Songfacts reports that Vernon told UK newspaper The Sun naming it Bon Iver shows he’s accepting winter is a big part of the album.
