Tove Lo's real name is Ebba Tove Elsa Nilsson. Her parents started calling her Tove Lo at the age of 3, after she fell in love with a Lynx ("Lo" is Swedish for "Lynx") during a visit to an animal park. She has a tattoo of a lynx on her right hand.
Her name is pronounced "Too-veh Lu," but she doesn't correct people who mispronounce it.
Nilsson studied at the music-orientated high school Rytmus Musikergymnasiet, which is similar to the UK's BRIT School. She met and befriended there Caroline Hjelt (of Icona Pop).
