Noah and the Whale - pedantic niggle

I've been hearing their (quite cute) song on the radio, and being slightly niggled by their name. I kept thinking to myself that surely it ought to be 'Jonah and the Whale', so I had to look them up and found that, according to the ever-reliable (hmm) Wikipedia:

'Their name is a marriage of the title of one of the band's favorite films, "The Squid and the Whale," and the name of the director (Noah Baumbach).'

So that's OK. But I can't help still having a slight hmm reaction when I hear the name. And that's leaving out completely the fact that they sound a bit like Loyd Grossman when they sing, which is a bit irritating in itself...

Anyway - whinge overgrin.
