Names -> Cool Band Names -> L, 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:
Lil' Snap Hey, I wanted to become a rapper when I grew up. I was going to name myself Lil' Snap.  parody_MASTA
Lili Zanotto A character in 2005 video game Psychonauts. Thought of it when I was playing SSX On Tour (another 2005 game), which had a band in the soundtrack which sounds like a name for a single person, Billy Talent. JeReMy
Lilindigo As I'm quite interested in colours, I put lilac and indigo together. Lilindigo was the result. Natasha
Lilindigo As I'm quite interested in colours, I put lilac and indigo together. Lilindigo was the result. Natasha
Lillian's Wish My friend and I were doing homework and talking over MSN, and he asked what song I was listening to I told him "Lillian" (by Plus 44) and he answered "'Wish" (Nightwish, he's too lazy to type that out). Then we thought it'd be cool if he renamed his band "Lillian's Wish". He's done that now and their CD covers (which they make themselves) feature a zombie-like, dead or goth anime girl, named Lillian. Shan
Lily Maxi Pad A lily pad + a femine hygiene product=Drier frogs.  Opie M.
Limbic System I was ramdomly looking through the dictionary one day (I have no life)and I found this. The Limbic system is a part of the brain which controls emotions. It would be great for an emo band! lol  Mary Jane
Lime-Purple I like limes and the colour puple. That guy...
Limit Infiniti Thought of it in math class when we were talking about infinite limits, thought it sounded cool. You could spell infinity the correct way if you wanted to, but I like it with an 'i' better Britton
Limit of Shunt This is a sign I saw by the train tracks. I have no clue what it means, but it seems to imply, "this is as far as I will be pushed", which I think is cool for a band name. Jeremy
Limited Three  At the time, I liked the store Limited Two. But I had three people in the band.  Victoria R.
Limited Time Only A friend of mine, who was already in a band, was going to put together a band for the High School Talent Show, but it was only going to be for that one show. Anyways, he was rackin' his brain for a name for the band, and I just quiped out "For a Limited Time Only", which I shorted to Limited Time Only. He loved it, and was gonna use it . . . until he found out the Talent Show had been canceled.  Captain =W=
Limosine of Turnips The Spanish artist Salvador Dali once turned up at some sort of exhibition in a limosine full of turnips. Mz
Limozene I think it's cool because it's something of high class. Spelling it wrong, you are making it sound tainted. tyty
Limping Gimp Bandits No matter how far or what time or what day, it would always be easy to catch one of their shows. And if they were great you would hop till you limped, and if they sucked they could change limping to lame. badboybear
The Limpkins Since there are numerous bird names for bands, including The Larks, The Sandpipers, The Flamingos, and The Eagles, here's another bird name I thought I'd suggest! D. Melody Dole, MD
The Lin Kuei This would be cool because it's the name of Sub-Zero's tribe from Mortal Kombat flash_smb
The Linchpins It's cool because a linchpin is a device that holds everything else together. I came up with it when I had to make a fake band for a poster I was doing. David
Lincolnstein What if someone reanimated Lincoln (and I don't mean Disney)? RevengeFromMars YouTube
Linebacker Motivator It's from Wipeout. For their "Wipeout Bowl" special after Super Bowl 43, they had the "Linebacker Motivator", which was a man in a football jersey and pads who would push people into the Big Balls, similar to the giant pendulum Motivator that was introduced in the upcoming season. JeReMy

Lion Heart Ultimate of Squall from "Final Fantasy" and exactly a nice combo like in the bands. It looks like you are doing some combos. 2ny
Lip My Stockings From the Bill Murray film "Lost In Translation", which is set in Japan. Bill plays a commercial actor who meets Scarlett Johansson while filming in Tokyo. He also encounters a Japanese call girl/actress who orders him (in Engrish) to rip her panty hose (what she believes American actors do). Bill mishears this as "lip my stockings".  Japan
Lip Service Just a cool band name for a female rock group whose members have big lips or wear really red lipstick. sherock
Lip Sti-x I saw a lipstick thing on the ground. I said, "Ahh, what the heck!" I added an "X". Pretty sweet. Chris phipps

Liquid Ear Wax I enjoy cleaning out my ears. But I don't know why I think it's cool, it just is. I mean, the slogan for the band could be, "Our music will be so aggressive to the ears, it'll give you Liquid Ear Wax." Miles
Liquid Hatred It's liquid and you hate it. (Ed.'s note: Love the name; hate the description.] reak
Liquid Jelly Monkey Love Myself and three of my friends all wrote one word on a card. Then we shuffled them and flipped them over, and that's what it came out as. Cecee
Liquid Love Heard an "actor" use the term in a really bad porno movie. Matty
Liquid Measure On my grandparents fridge there is this magnet that says "Liquid Measure" and I always thought that would be a great name for a rock band. Linbrethil
Liquid Sandpaper I was in shop the other day (Auto Body Repair) and my teacher was discussing buffing compound. He explained to us that there was Pumice(ohh there's another one!) in the compound so that it would cut through caked on dirt on the surface of a car. "Almost like liquid sandpaper" he said... Trystan
liquido because in spanish, it means water...ok, not actually water, it means liquid, but its the same thing! I came up with it because...mmm...I“m creative! zurisadai ortega
Liquor is Quicker Part of a poem by Ogden Nash, quoted in the original Willy Wonka movie... I think this is a genius line. Elle
Lit Fag I'ts like super sweet because British people call cigarettes fags, and also it could mean a drunken homosexual. Nostradamus
Lita Margarita Tila Tequila's cousin? Or a Tejano band? RevengeFromMars YouTube

Then I decided that would have to be the name of our band! Just imaging a bride in a sexy little black dress. We are three chicks who rock. Eskimo Joey
Little Broken Hearts i saw it in graffitti on east hastings. and no i don't live there. my dad thought a trip through there would be "educational". tania

Little Cat Z In "The Cat in the Hat Comes Back" (which, by the way, is the Godfather Part II of children's fiction), the Cat has a long sequence of progressively smaller Little Cat's under each other's hats, in alphabetical order, until Little Cat Z, which was roughly the size of a bromine atom, under whose hat lied VOOM!, the awesome force which, once unleashed, cleans up pink stuff. McAlister
Little D*** and the Extenders How do you THINK I came up with it? IGNATZ
The Little Evil Kittens I work with kittens. Once I met this crazed little kitty who had this habit of attacking people and other kittens. This cat was EVIL!!! This would be perfect for a group making fun of girl bands. IHaveNoBrain
A Little Extreme For Jesus i was in english talking about the bible to my teacher and i said something about jesus telling people to hate their families. my teacher looked taken aback and said, "whoa, that's a little extreme for jesus". the guy next to me said that if he ever had a band he'd call it that. mc

Little Sally Spingel Spungel Sporn The idea comes from a song called 'Happy Birthday To Little Sally Spingel Spungel Sporn', in 'The Cat In The Hat Song Book' by Dr. Suess. All of that book's songs can now be found on YouTube, by the way. Regina Haniger

The Lloyd Christmas Band Lloyd Christmas was the character played by Jim Carrey in Dumb & Dumber. When I first met the band, we were talking about our funniest films & we all said Dumb & Dumber. First we called it Lloyd, but there's a bank in Britain by the same name so we used all his name. Well, there you go!

LOKI When staying in a hotel, the band picked up the bible, and looked for the angel of death, who happened to be named loki. They thought it was a cool name, but thought nothing of it. Then they decided they decided they needed a little "hardcore action", but since no one would sell them porn, they decided WWF was enough, and there was a low card wrestler named Low-Ki. They then put in Dogma a few hours later, and behold, another character named Loki. It finally sunk in, and the band got the name Loki. (They are from Iowa, a few from Iowa City, and a few from Marion). Andrew
