They were originally just named "The Mothers".

"Of Invention" was added by a nervous MGM/Verve record executive that was afraid of censorship.

The Mothers of Invention were originally "The Soul Giants". They hired Zappa and the rest is history. Jimmy Carl Black of the Soul Giants/Mothers/Geronimo Black/Grandmothers just passed away in the last year or so.
