Names -> Cool Band Names -> C, Page 3

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.

Submitted by:
Change For A Penny  This name is cool because how can you give change for a penny.I came up with this name when my buddies and I started asking for Change for a Penny WAR85
Changing Consistency I just think it sounds cool cuz if something is consistent it's supposed to stay the same so it's sort of contradictory.  Audrey
Channel 7 it a local cable channel and my mom just started doing a pretty cool show on it zake man
Channel Lightvessel Automatic It's one of the sea areas on the UK shipping forecast. I always thought it sounded cool and would make a good band name. Then some b*****d decided to call their band Channel Lightvessel and release an album called Automatic! Robbed! Dan
Chaos Because There's a ring to it, don't it?? My friend wanted something Chaos. And I just thought because. Celine
Chaos Burns White Well it not satanic like Chaos Burns Red so I changed it to white and it sounded awesome Caleb
Chaos Legion Well me and my mate are in this power metal band and we were thinking of names that we could use for songs and we were sort of just looking around the room and I saw this really GAY PC game called Chaos Legion so i thought hey this would be an awsome name for a metal band.  GuitarManGav
Chaos of Darkness Me and Tirza came up with it. Chazm
Chaos Theory I saw it on C.S.I. It is best described as "a butterfly flaps it's wings in China and there's a tornado in Texas". Good name for a alternative band. Joe Montmatre
Chaotic Carma  We came up with this cause bad s*** kept happening to Fred not that you would know Fred or even care its just carma is the stuff that is like huge coincidence so we thought since it was bad crap happening to him we might as well and we lasted about 2 weeks as a band. Little-big-foot
Chaotic Emotions Nothing would mess with your head worse then Emotions in Chaos LouisianaBigfoot
The Chaperones If it's not already this should be a band name. Good pop band name. I just think it sounds cool. Edward
The Chaps I was just talking to ben one time about crappy band names. I said "I recon the worst band name ever would have to be the 'Chaps'". So from then on, we were know as 'The Chaps'. Guitar Chap
The Character Issues From a Calvin & Hobbes comic, where Calvin thinks that his dad's character is killing him in the 'Dad Poll'. therealdeepblue
Characters On the stage you can be almost any character. NICKI
Chareesma When I was a kid I was reading out of an adult book for show and tell, since my aunt wrote it. I pronounced the word "Charisma" "Char-rees-ma", and the teacher was forced to correct me. The year later I moved to St. Louis. Eight years later, I thought I recognized someone at a music competition. It was some guy from my class who only remembered me because of my reading mistake in fourth grade. He played drums, I played bass, so naturally we clicked and formed a band with some of my other friends.  Pseudonym Psally
Charges Of Lime i was kinda thinking of of citrus fruits and and zapping stuff at the same time so.............. jake
Chariots of Fire  Joe
Charismatic Assault  I just combined two words with pretty much opposite meanings and came up with this......If you don't know what charismatic means it means like outgoing, easy to get along with so a friendly assault if that makes any sense kyle
Charlatan Heroes Well, "charlatan" means false, or pretend... so it's along the lines of "false idols." I'm not sure, I might be using this.  Jack
Charlemagne This was the name of a song I heard, and I thought it sounded like a really cool band name. Pronounced (Shar-lih-main). It is also the name of a famous king. Rach
Charles Monroe The antithesis of Marilyn Manson! Pure as the driven snow christian rock. That sure would be equally annoying. Matt
Charles Monroe like marilyn manson but backwards. Marilyn Manson got his name from Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson so i desided instead of Marilyn Manson it could be Charles Monroe Nick Rolstad
Charlie-in-the-Box He's one of the Misfit Toys from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer - the best Christmas movie EVER!!!! Koala Gurl
Charms I was reading Harry Potter Books, then there is their subject they call Charms and my cousin says she wants to have a band. When she mentioned the word band, I was reading the next word, which is Charms!  guitar_girl
Charon I thought Charon would be a cool name for a heavy metal or punk band. Charon is a man you rows dead spirits across the river styx to hades. It sounds cool. It is in the dictonary. You can look it up if you want. Lauren
Charybdis I was reading the "The Odyssey" by Homer and thought it would be awesome band name from the Greek myth of a giant whirlpool in the Mediterannean Sea. It swallows ships going by 3 times a day. Jaymz H.
The CharzFellon Pronouced like ChargeFellon...But its without the 'g' and drop 'e' and add 'z'. I don't know why but just sounds cool to me. The Duke
Chasing Alexis we came up with this band name pretty easily. We were trying to figure one out, and we had been asking my cousin Alexis alot. So our screamer Josh said "Why don't we go chase Alexis for another name?" This was going to be our name before we switched it for "To Save Us All" Anthony
Chasing Daylight Not my idea! Its the name 4 the band that my 4 best guy friends are in! I thought they were nuts! Stephanie
Chasing Evan My friends and I used to drink Evan Williams Bourbon all the time. One day, I had come up with a name for a band if we ever made one. I guess it's cool for old time sake. Yeah
Chasing Thunder me and my friend are trying to make a band... and she came up with this! oli
Chasing Umbrellas There's an Abba song that goes "Don't go wasting your emotions", but someone misheard it as "Don't go chasing your umbrella". Don't you just love misheard lyrics? Plus, it just sounds so cool! Princess Ana
Chastity Belt Nice name for an up and coming girl's rock band ryza
Chateau I love this name because it means castle! And it's an awsome name I got the idea off of the store Le Chateau! Alexis
Chav Return I really hate the presence of chavs in my area. But when they stole the Hippie look (that they had previousy sneered at when I wore it), it was the last straw! I never thought I'd say this, but their baby blue hoodies and fake burberry caps will be sadly (but strangely) missed.  poohead
Cheater Key Another one of the terms used in my line of work. A cheater key is a slender stick that turns on a scanner from an alternative slot while the switch is off. It helps in the cleaning and maintenence of the machine. Indy
Cheats I was watching this movie one day that I had never seen before, called, "Cheats." About this High School posse who just absolutely hate school and everything that has to do with school, and of course the school work they have to do. They've been that way ever since Kindercarten. And they grow up to be these lazy ass cheaters that get through life by cheating through it, and they have friends in every group at school because they can get "information" to cheat to get them through tests and stuff. And it ends with the "leader" one might say, actually graduating High School because he cheated through the midterm. Now it might be bad that he cheated, but there's a sense of coolness there. All his friends mumbling under their breaths just loud enough to hear them say, "Cheated the midterm!" or "Cheated, cheater!" Some of his friends decided that they were different and they wanted to do it on their own. But I think it's mostly that they're different, by people who choose to do things the easy way, and others who choose to do it the hard way. So this is a cool name because all the while we may be good, but on the inside we're really bad in our own "innocent" way. okay bad description but i cant think of any other way to describe it :-P kristen
Check Her Out I heard this guy with a Cuban accent saying this once, (not to me, unfortunately) and it sounded like, "Checker-ow". It's just a very flowing name. Sarcasma Creator
Check Your Manpork MY friend came up with it, when he was thinking of a band name. It was Check your manbeef, but there already is a manbeef.com Gwank
Checking The Victim It was in a health book I read, I thought it sounded cool dude
Checklist My band was looking for a name, and this is what we came up with. [Ed.'s note: Like a checklist of names, get it?] c-train
Checkpoint Charlie It was the name of [a border crossing] occupied Berlin after WWII. Thought it was cool. I did a research project on it in the junior high school. hazabad el khamun
The Cheech Boys Another band that likes the chronic a bit too much. Not sure whether they play surf music or not. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Cheer Up Chemo Kid My friend Dani bought a patch one day that said "Cheer Up Emo Kid." The next day at lunch we discovered that someone had added a "ch" in front of the emo part. I thought it would make a really interesting/offensive band name. Cassandra
Cheers Brother Dom  I was on this retreat a few weeks ago. There was a Franciscan brother named Brother Dominic. He always said "Cheers!" since he was from New Zealand. Someone said something about "Brother Dominic and the teens need to pose for a picture". Someone else said that Brother Dominic and the Teens sounded like a band name, but I didn't like the "teens" part. So I stuck in Cheers instead.  Jess
Cheese Because it is irrelevant! A dude
