Yes and no. There was a spy plane called the U-2 bomber. I've read quotes by Bono discussing the name U2. He says they chose it because it's ambiguous. It could mean anything and nothing, or whatever you want it to mean. I'm sure the bomber was an influence, but to say it is where they got their name is likely missing the bigger picture.
