Names -> Cool Band Names -> L, Page 1

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.

L three three seven L337 is short for leet, which is in turn online slang for elite. it's used by nerds to describe the very best. stefan
L-Vis Great rapper name! Like Elvis? Howabout L-Vis? Drew
L.A.V.I.S.H. / Project L.A.V.I.S.H. Lasses And Vixens In Superpowerful Hypnosis. Intended for a all-guy group, to imply that they REALLY impress the female fans. How I came up with it? The word "lavish" popped into my head, and I just thought I'd come up with an acronym for it. This is what came to mind....scary, huh? Jonathan S.
L.O.U.D this means live as you learn! its a brillaint name but the lads in my band wouldnt agree so now we're using instinctive error which is cool too! best of luck to every band out there! its brill fun xxx Niamh
L49 L49 was in a "Smashers" magazine, founded in 1981 and published in 1983. Matt
L8 Nites I think it represents the attitude and it relates to many people because as we know we all have late nights! I just thought of it one day. Cody
La Muerte Roja It's Spanish for "The Red Death",and that's a cool name.And if your an OJ fan like me,you could call them Thrax. uppurs. Ozzehmosis

Labrinyth Of Darkness I like the movie Labrinyth and I thought it'd be cool  MFC
The Lacklusters I think its a neat word, and it implies monotony. The jaded reality of daily life as a teenager. kristin
The Lacklustres I got the idea from some idiot who couldn't spell. [Ed.'s note: I have to disagree with you somewhat, Itchy, on kristin's entry for "The Lacklusters". The spelling of this name depends on what side of the Prime Meridian you are from. I do prefer your spelling of it, though.] Itchy
The Laconic Conviction That could be a cool band name in honor of all those bands that have the talent but dont give a rats patootie about fame! They just want to play local and be with their people. Lucky for us, they just do it cuz they love doing it.  badboybear
LaCToSe iNToLeReNT Even though it's based on a dairy product problem... It's still cool enough to pass. Who says food related names aren't good for rock names? P.S. (It's already taken by me... Songs will soon be posted on www.true-fusion.vze.com's music page) Reeko
Laddie Macbeth Like Lady Macbeth, but with a sort of sting in the tail... would be a great name for a drag queen too. Ariane
Lade I though it would make a great cd poster. "Get LADE on April 15, 2003 In Stores everywhere!" MicLiggy
Lady Gag Me this is the name my mother gave Lady GaGa because she thinks she's dumb. its funny though minny
Lady Mondegreen It's from the misheard lyrics thing (laid him on the green=lady mondegreen). It sounds like it already exists, though. Lia
Ladysmith It's a town in northern Wisconsin near where my grandparents live. Sounds like Aerosmith meets Iron Maiden, huh? Alex
Lager Heads Sounds like another band with a drinking problem. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Lahe or Shet Back when we were both in college, I was helping my sister write a paper for a class, and we were spell checking it, and we kept getting these words popping up: "Lahe" and "shet". We were completely baffled as to what they were, until we realized what had happened. Earlier, we had decided to change the whole paper from second-person ("when you get hired at this store, you will...") to third-person ("when an employee gets hired at this store, he or she will..."). So to begin this process, we used the find and replace function to search out every "you" and replace it with "he or she". Obidiently, the computer had done this, even to the middle of the word "layout", which appeared many times in the paper. Maybe we were just high on caffiene, but we both thought that was pretty damn funny, and she said it would make a good band name, so here it is. (Thank Jamie if you like it.) Carolee
Lakitu and the Spinies Another one of my Mario references, Lakitu is the turtle with glasses who throws Spinies at Mario. Alan the Ottoman

Lardy Fairies Who cares about pretty little fairies - these ones are unimployed and alcoholic ! madcat
Large Midgets These guys are a local band that got their name from a comedian that was on the 'Bob and Tom' radio show. It was a bit about how this guys dad took him to a really cheap circus with, "The World's Largest Midgets." princess of power
Large Print Edition  The original name of this band was "Heaven in a Can" (How I came up with that is a different story.) But yeah. LPE was gonna be the name of our first album, but I liked the album name. And by the way, we're not ska. We're noize.  Zeph
LARP StanDs for Live Action Role Play, which is pretty much acting like you're in medieval times, wearing costume armor and fighting imaginary enemies. GlamRockNinjaLord

Larry Fink and the Steamy Weenies I was in this band in the early 80's in N. Illinois. The name came from the movie "Meatballs, During the Hotdog eating contest, Bill Murrey leans over and says to Fink, " Look at all those Steamy Weenies" The rest is history. We were a Beatles tribute band! Jeff
Larry Not Larry My parents were talking about who was coming to fix out plumbing and locks and my mom said angrily "It's Larry Not Larry!" (As in there were two different Larrys.) Olivia
Larva Cryptic name for one of those murky Brit type import bands with album covers that look like the stuff in lava lamps blew up all over some wrinkled aluminum foil and sing in nonsense syllables. Ray Kiraruta
Larval Mass Came up with it in a biology lesson. For a death metal band, obviously! James Bell
Lascivious Turtles Well I was at this Shakespeare acting camp, and we were doing the play "The Merry Wives of Windsor," and in one of the scenes with Mistress Page and Mistress Ford, one of the lines was Lascivious Turtles. Very few of us understand what that meant, but those of us who did cracked up and it become somewhat of an inside joke. Deuce

Laserhead Do you need to know? NewWaveNinja

Last Ditched Effort I came up with this one night when my band was looking to get a new bass player and we went threw like 8 or 9 dudes. We got a call tell us someone knew a dude that was real good and could rip s***, so we all decided that this was our last ditched effort to get a bass player and if it didn't go good then the other guitarist would play bass. Besides its an old saying that can apply to a lot of things. Vercetti Jones
The Last Frontier Of 'Error Man' I (brownie) came up with this one, attempting to make a connection to band names such as And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Queens Of The Stone Age. (Highly acclaimed bands tend to have strange elaborate names) Brownie & Twinkle Toes

Last Standstill/Longest Standstill We were on our way to Virginia and the opposite traffic was at a huge *standstill* and it went on for a long line. So I thought of "The Longest Standstill". Then I got to thinking about the "Last Standstill". Either or works. Jake

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
Leaders It came to me as I entered another name. NICKI
Leafy Greens My friends and I were sitting on my front porch talking about secret stuff. Workers were coming in and out of our house to fix our floors. One of my friends would say, "Leafy Greens" when ever someone would come out, so I thought that sounded like a cool band name. weird o

Leaky Hosepipe At school, we were thinking of names for a totally hopeless bunch trying to start a band - none of us had played an instrument before! We came up with a couple that said "this thing's no darn use to anyone!!" Others were: Burnin' Fire-escape ... like, yeah, where you gonna go now!! MT Canne (empty can) ... not even a drop of cola left! SoapSliver ... that tiny piece that just breaks in your hand and doesn't even foam. Dead Budgie ... well, you get the idea. eastcoastjac
Leap Of Faith A common term used to explain how mankind understands and excepts the existence of God; and the same explanation used by Darwinist to explain their illogical belief in the 145 year-old unproven "theory" of evolution. But a really cool name for a band too. This I know because it was my groups name about 4 years ago. We went with it because we all agreed for our band to sign on a label. We needed to show a strong leap of faith that it would happen. Whoops! I guess some things were never meant to be.  Raphiel D'angel
