Names -> Cool Band Names -> C, Page 5

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.

Name
 
Origin
 
Submitted by:
Clear Advantage I think it's a cool name because when people watch your show there always going to say you have the Clear Advantage. Nelson
Clear Conscious I thought about the way my band sounds, and this seems like the appropriate term. We sound clear, and understandable.  Martina
Cleara's Day I was looking at baby names and the welsh name cleara came up. I thought it was so cute, and then sister said, I saw it clear as day. So I turned it into a play on word. Michaela
The Cleveland Quickies I thought it would be cool because my family calls a quick emergency cleanup for unexpected guests a Cleveland quickie, who knows why? They would be an underground punk band. rod the mod
Cliff Diver and the Splash I needed a name for a band in a short story I wrote in high school. It might not be the coolest name, but I got an A for the story. That was cool. Bill
Clingskales Working for Safeway (a chain of grocery stores), this was someone's last name on their receipt, and thought it was a cool last name. [Ed.'s note: If this is your name, beware of identity theft.] Twight
Clinic For The Dead Where do zombies go for medical help? See answer above. :) scary
Clockstopper and The Pocket Watchers I was thinking Pocket watch, and then turned it into pocket watchers. I needed something to put ahead of it, so it sounded like a lead singer guy. And clock seemed to fit. I just think it really sounds cool. It really doesn't mean anything. Ed
Clockwork Hatters i was playing poker in my math class (cuz we were REALLY bored) and later i was looking through my gaming magazine at the new American Mcgee's alice: madness returns game. when it hit me from the first game how the hatters hat looked. it had all these clock parts sticking out of it and it was all creepy and twisted. thats when i thought it would work for a band if they'll all be willing to wear top hats with twisted clock parts sticking out of it. azrael
Clockwork Space If you like Stanley Kubrick, you'll know what I'm talking about. Jason Vienna
Clone The Jones Jones: One of the most common names in America. Everyone wants to be like the Jones next door. Have what they have, do what they do..etc. So why not just clone the Jones then we can all be satisfied.  Gary Gray
The Clones I came up with it because there were 2 Japanese kids that looked the same So I called them "The Clones". hello
Close Enough We had this cover band, see. And we were playing this gig for a 20-year anniversary for my neighbors' parents at this ol' peoples' home. I came up with the idea that we were not quite on the money, but close enough for comfort. But in the end, we were called "E18 Norrut" which is the official name for one of our interstate freeways. Alex Jonsson
Closed for Renovations With this up on the marquee, would anyone know if a band was playing? Can also use "closed for private show" Buster Cherry
Closed For Renovations I've always wanted to this on a sign outside a venue "Tonight, Closed for Renovations" Clocker
Cloud in the Sky if your lookin for christian names its talkiing about heaven.i saw only 1 cloud in the sky and i was thinking for a name for my christian rock band  Aaron Thompson
Cloud29 well we had just started a band and we are a religious band we were think of angels which led us to cloud then we put the first letters our names and we counted them out of the alphabet i t equaled29 so we thougth and it grew but unfortunatley the other band member didnt like it so now its free to use SWeetie
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
Clouds Above This sounds like a really smooth name for a band. It sounds like u'r in a dream and also gives the impression the band might be a bit high in more then one way. ; ) Claudina
Clouds That Follow Through Your Anus Me and Tirza came up with it. Chazm
Clover Tongue It's got sexual connotations and it just sounds cool. Everyone wishes they could make their tongue into a clover. [Ed.'s note: No, not everybody.] GigiMoney
Clown Closet Based on skit from the old "Electric Company" which a woman shows a man a clothes closet, then a "clown closet" with clowns coming out of it. Maybe a band of gay clowns coming out. (Hope they're not too offended.)  Opie M.
The Clown Punchers I have an extreme dislike of clowns. I think they are pure evil. So I made this up. Good name for a punk band or something like that morgs
Club Ninja It's the name of a really bad Blue Oyster Cult album, but I think it would be a great band name. G
Clubber Lang Have you seen Rocky III? geko

Clueless Sun-Worshippers My friends mom said it out loud in the car. it was really cool Skadogg33
Clytemnestra It's pronounced: 'cligh-te-ma-nestra'. It was the name of some woman in Greek tragedy. It's also the name of a flower. I think it sounds pretty BA if you ask me. Trent Estrada
CNUT like FCUK (French Connection UK, a clothing company) but changed to a better 'swear word look-a-like', we tried to make it mean something incase our parents asked, but failed Danny McNeill
Coal Promises coal is what you use to make fuel so we can generate stuff such as cars, coal can also help destroy things e.g. ozone layer. promises because you can promise to generate or make something happen and then you can totaly destroy that promise, so if you make a coal promise its untrustworthy. J.k Collins
Coal, Oil, Natural Gas Describes the answer to every multiple choice question on every exam in Juniour High I was too stoned to answer correctly prince jellyfish
Coalition I'm not sure if it's cool or not, I just like names that are simple. Nothing so that people have to think about what you're trying to get across but just leaving them to decide what it means for them. anybody

Cockburn Inc. It comes from the Angry Videogame Nerd Movie and its a fictional company that is creating a sequel to the critically panned videogame ET. I sounds funny beardangel555

Cockroach Rebellion Most people are genuinely scared of roaches. Just imagine what would happen if they decide to take over. Enough of squishing them, it's now your turn to be squished. j.alex

Cod Roe Ice Cream This was an actual dish prepared on IRON CHEF (by Iron Chef Sakai, no less). Needless to say, it was one of the less successful attempts at culinary innovation. Todd W. Zimmerman
Code of Conduct I think its cool because you see all these bands come out with their thoughts and beliefs of why and how they sing, dance and dress a certian way, most of the time they end up changing one or all of their styles and beliefs, but i think that would be a cool way to show a bands authenticity, By their code of conduct.  $ecretV!cTor!@

Commander K. K. Well, it started out when I was playing Animal Crossing and listening to the funky music of K.K. Slider. Then, I learned of a project in Art class where we had to make plasticine art.
