Whenever I hear a cool phrase somewhere, I like to exclaim "That would make a cool band name". This page is a list of such names.
I can not verify whether these names have been taken yet or not. If your band happens to already use one of these names sorry. If you want to use a name you see here, you'll need to verify it's not already in use.
The 20 most recent entries are listed below. There are 10513 Cool Band Names entries on the site.
|Water Knee,Seeing That Pavement Is Larking Nothing||I woke up from a confused dream, with a cryptic or nonsensical phrase running throng my head.That phrase was "Water knee, seeing that pavement is larking nothing". The phrase might make a "cool band name", albeit it a long one.||Sir Ron Norris|
|Dishes, Sand, Or Pets||I was on a field trip to a campground and old mine where visitors could pan for gold and other minerals. A sign on the wall in the restroom there read "No dishes, sand, or pets in the sinks". Suddenly I thought how that motley assortment could make for a "cool band name"!||Nicole Velocin|
|Dovelock||A sea bird, Dovekie, sounds essentially like "dove key", and its name is easily mistaken for that that. Since a dove key would be what opens dove locks, this name came to mind as a result.||Toni Minot|
|Kid's Eat Free||Saw this sign at a restaurant and thought it would be a cool band name.||Simon|
|Postcard From A Plane Crash||It's a song from Fall Out Boy.||Simon|
|Gecko||It's the last name of George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino in From Dusk Till Dawn.||Simon|
|Cloudbluff Fall For Butterfly||Remarkably like Marcia's post of "Helen Yum In Markham", I also asked Siri something. And my quest was also unsuccessful because Siri couldn't understand what I was saying. I asked what is the scientific name of Cloudless Sulphur Butterfly. The actual name, I later learned, is Phoebis sennae. But Siri couldn't answer because she heard "Cloudless Sulphur Butterfly" as "Cloudbluff Fall For Butterfly". So here's another of her mishearings that could make a good "Cool Band Name"!||Roy R. Pryor|
|Firmy Leeper||Just a name I found in someone's address book. There was no address with it, so I believe this person does not exist. But I've been wrong before.||The Late John Lennon|
|Monroe||Just think about it. A hard rock band named after a famous actor.||Thomas|
|The Earthupials||In a class I was once in, the topic of the day was Marsupials, that group of mammals that lack placentas, and mostly have pouches. Somebody asked, Why aren't they Earthupials, since they live on Earth, not Mars? I remembered that through the years, and now, I've eventually thought "Oh, a possible Cool Band Name!".||D. Melody Dole, MD|
|Rhinoceros Chocolate||A pun on Rhinoceros Auklet, a seabird of the North Pacific, closely related to puffins.||Regina Haniger|
|Helen Yum In Markham||I tried to ask "Siri" (that robotic "person" to talk to on my iPhone) what was the common name of "Helenium amarum", a flower in the sunflower family. The common name is something like Bitter Sneezeweed. Siri couldn't help, since the only thing she made out of "Helenium amarum" was "Helen Yum In Markham". Then I thought, ah, that could be a good Cool Band Name!||Marcia Zarwetten-Grassi|
|Inner anarchy||I came up with this name trying to come up with a name for my rock band but I decided to give it a different name so if anyone wants it it's there's||Alice|
|Hasbro Smythe||Just a fake name I wrote as a kid while writing a screenplay. More like a pseudonym than a group name. I don't if it would sell any albums, but the first name sold a lot of toys.||Guy Dance|
|ben for the rebound||A friend of mine has a crush but the girl is taken. When they break up someone said that ben will go in for the rebound. I think this name would be good for punk rock/pop or emo band||beardangel777|
|Twin Decision||So, I was watching the Dolan Twins on YouTube (check them out, btw) and they mentioned making a "twin decision", and I thought it would be a cool name for a duo of twins!||wand erection|
|Colder in Society||Just randomly came to us in a conversation.||Jake Leigh|
|Lead Singer and the Backup Band||There's quite a few bands that follow this naming convention (Elvis Costello and the Attractions, Huey Lewis and the News, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) so why not a band that simply spells out that convention. The only problem would be the lead singer having to explain that his name isn't "Lead Singer".||Brian Kelly|
|Flat Tire Donut||I have a flat tire on my car, and it made me think about donuts.||Lance Crackers|
|My Name Is Kentucky Fried Chicken||A Family Feud Fast Money answer. Q: A name given to a boy.A: Kentucky Fried Chicken)||Frosty The Cat|
