He told NME:
''It was a shit name, but most band names are shit. Look at Beady Eye - shit fucking name. It wasn't just that though. There was shop in the Manchester Arndale Market called Oasis that used to sell cool clothes too, and there was a taxi fucking rank round the corner called Oasis. It meant that we were out there, because we were different.''
Interestingly enough Gallagher had originally stated in an interview with Q magazine in 2011:
"People will be calling their kids Beady Eye by the end of the year"
Who knows what he'd say to those people who actually named their kids Beady Eye...
Beady Eye released their second studio album BE on June 10th which you can purchase on Amazon.
