Names -> Cool Band Names -> N, 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.

N.A.T.O [No Action Talk Only] thats cool??? Akha Maulana
N.O.D. (Nation of Domination) We came up with this during a school project. We thought it was cool because its original and sounds heavy metalish. mike and tyler
N.W.S. ( No Warning Shots ) Well me and my friends had decided to make a band. Our first name had been Caution. But we said no because well it was gay. So we thought of No Warning Shots and then abbreviated it to N.W.S. Its cool cuz well it just sounds cool !!! Zak
N/A Of course that would mean "Not Applicable", as in when asked what kind of music they play. For one of those eclectic alt-pop bands. rocky
n00ps and KRoF spoon and fork...backwards...n00ps is my nickname VooDooXII
Nabobs Of Negativism I think it was President Nixon who once referred to the media as nattering nabobs of negativism. I just took off the word nattering because that's just too long. I like it because I like alliteration for one thing. I think it sounds like a punk rock, hard rock kind of band name. I'm not exactly sure what a nabob is. But, with lots of these punk rock bands with their songs that are all about being unhappy and how life sucks and being rebellious because the world (in their minds) is a miserable place, it's a great name for a band with that musical style. You know, for people who think everything is hopeless. Edward
Nada Dada This would have been a 'real band name' had I ever been in a 'real band'. We practised a few times in a cellar and talked about it a lot. I chose the name to wind the 'bassist' up, but since found out it means 'Nothing Given' in Spanish (thanks to Babel Fish translator) and that there is some sort of Festival named Nadadada. Why is it cool? Well apart from it's meaning in Spanish, the allusions to the Dada anti-art movement, and the silly childish 'dadada' sound. Is this a legitimate entry? Well the 'band' don't exist and never really did, and as far as I'm concerned the name is up for grabs Chris
Nadir Means the lowest point on Earth. Alex
Nah, That's A Bit Obvious!!! It suits my personality. I came up with it, as I'm grumpy and rude and stroppy. But, I am kind hearted. Samia
The Naifes there this dude at school that my friends call naife or naifie its so funny...they even changed the lyrics to stacy's mum (good times good times) Strange Polly
Nailbreaker Another riot-grrl group, along the lines of Hole or Kittie. With a name like Nailbreaker, their songs might be about dispelling gender stereotypes. Or something. Olvan The Terrible
The Naked Barbie Hour What is it with kids taking the clothes off of Barbie dolls? Everytime I see a Barbie she is nude and her hair is all messed up.  Mitch
The Naked Flames When my brothers band first got together, they had to come up with a name for their first gig. I looked down at my lighter and it said something like, 'Be careful around naked flames.' So I said, 'How about The Naked Flames?' They have a different name now, but I still think that ones cool. Cat
Naked Potato I think it's cool because it's just so random. It's not expected. It's also got the word 'naked' in it, which is usually reason enough. I came up with it when I was searching for the perfect sn with my friends..I decided on someting similar, but it now reminds me of the mango charactor on snl..(I don't know why, but it's cool enough to me..A wrinkled old man with no clothes on and with a russian accent mutteriung things like, 'I am the very much will be sexy. I being am too sexy for you..) olk, a bit off subject, but to sum it all up, the naked potato could kick darth vader's ass. Ali Morgan
Naked Swedish Supermodels Covered In Cake A friend of mine once said we should start a Glam Rock group and that our first album should feature the submitted name as its cover. GlamRockNinjaLord
Naked Toast and the Butter Knives I have an obsession with toast and toasters. (I even wrote a song called "Toaster") My friend Jill and I were talking about what would happen if toast was "naturally buttered"....then we started talking about toast in the wild....wild, free, and naked. Naked toast being toast that isn't buttered, of course. So out of that came Naked Toast and the Butter Knives. Their hit-"Lay Some Butter on Me" amanda
Name and the Adjective Blanks I was telling my brother that if I ever have a band that I would name it something using the structure of Name and the Adjective Blanks (ie. my personal favorite, Saint Genevieve and the Sexy Opossums). I then realized that it's cool by itself! saint genevieve
Name Withheld It's not really that cool. A friend and I had a brief, doomed acoustic duo act in college and this is what we called ourselves. We thought that if anyone ever called our college radio station and requested our music, the DJ would then be able to say "And now...Name Withheld, by request." No one ever called. Jess
Nameless I just think it sounds cool. Like you don't need to be grouped by your name. Rosa
Nameless Conviction I don't know but it sounds like cool! Thomas
Naming Convention  A term that is constantly used at work. to identify stuf. Sounds like technical speak -  Brandon Lovato
Namocatcat My old roommate in college was dating a Filipino girl, and this was her last name. Before he started dating her, I knew of her. A bunch of guys were looking for a name for their band and I suggested this. It's very original and kind of futuristic sounding, maybe, but also amusing and fun to say. And it is not something you forget. A
Nanook and the Blubberchewers  Yeah they could be the best jamming group north of the arctic circle. badboybear
NaO2 The chemical formula for sodium Hydroxide, the active corrosive agent in drainpipe cleaners. It just seems to have a pathological death meal vibe to it, kind of like a combo of Cannibal Corpse and Soylent Green.  rate of decay
Nap 'Til Nine I was talking to a friend about our plans for the evening and he said "m going to have dinner, nap 'til nine, then we'll go out." It sounds like a good name for a Ben Fold Five or Morphine type band Nick
Napolean and the Arsenics Napolean died of Arsenic poisioning, but the autopsy was bodged and it said he died of stomach cancer. The truth about his death was'nt revealed until the 1960's and even then most people didn't beleive it. Henry
Napoleon Carbonite The opposite of Napoleon Dynamite? RevengeFromMars YouTube
Narcissus the ultimate 80's style rock band. big hair, spandex and ,of course, mirrors everywhere. mongoloid
Narcoleptic Insomniacs A band with this name would almost certainly be indie/new wave; their big break would be earning a supporting slot for an Interpol tour. It's a fun name I came up with out of the blue. I'd say the words are contradictory in nature but are there actual N.I.'s out there? People who can't sleep apart from spontaneous, narcoleptic bursts? I'm curious...  Nerrticus
The Narcoleptic Security Guards I got it after watching an episode of Seinfeld. Security guards must be on full alert, and for them to have a sleeping disorder, well, the humor is quite obvious... joe b
Narcotics For Neurotics When one of those words is misheard for another in conversation, as my brother and I discovered, things can turn out pretty hilarious... but anyway, that's what music's supposed to be, right, your own personal therapy? Alex
Nards I came up with this while i was looking at mine. Dude
Narekevoli Backwards it says "I love Karen" but the fans would never figure that out plus it sounds weird and cool! kinda foreign Maggie
Nat King Coleslaw Everyone has heard of Nat King Cole, and everyone knows about coleslaw, so why not have a mashup? Matt
Nat Turner and The Slaves While studying for AP US History we looked over Nat Turner the abolitionist and the slaves he supported and we though, Imagine a band named Nat Turner and the slaves U3
The Nation of Facebook Facebook would be the 3rd largest country if it was it's own country, only behind China and India. JeReMy
National Nipple Day A random person shouted it at me in the hallway today. Rahsar
National Whatever Month Something a friend said about his feelings on there being just one official month in celebration of anything. He thought we should assign every month a title. GlamRockNinjaLord
Natural Disasters It sounds cool. Instead of naming your band one type of weather, you can just call them natural disasters.  jason f
Natural Hair Colour too many artists are dying their hair these days, can't they just be real? A band who's against fakes. Tash
Nature Droid Duck Pirates Me and Tirza came up with it. Chazm
Nature Of The Beast No explination necesary, it speaks for itself! My friend says, "Well that's the nature of the beast for ya".  Martin
Naught to Three Sad Onions It's from the Internet reviewer Ashens. This is how he describes the common way companies marks something as being unsafe for children under 3, mocking the pictures resemblance to an onion. JeReMy
Naughty Squirrels One day I was sitting down and I look in a tree and I see three squirrels going at it, so I decided to name my band Naughty Squirrles... but we don't have three-somes, mostly because there's five of us. Angilee
Naughty Zoot I'm a Monty Python fan and in "Monty Python and The Holy Grail", one of the knights goes to a castle full of women and discovers that the twin zoot had faked that the grail was there. Bad naughty zoot. Anthony Wagner
Naunie In Walmart, I punched my brother in the stomach, and I felt bad. So I rubbed it. Then he said jokingly, "Now say 'Naughty, naughty'". But I thought he said, "Naunie". Ashe
Naunie and the Pista Chios I heard my brother say, "Naughty", but I thought he said, "Naunie". The second part is from a bag of pistachios that I misread, and thought it said 'Pista Chios'. ASH
NAUSEA i was sitting at the t.v and saw a cartoon and there was a turtle sitting down saying he was nausiouse or how ever u spell it and then it clicked that NAUSEA would be a kool name for my new band. daniel
The Navel Semen A pun on "Naval Seamen". Plus, it'll be cool to have a band name with both "navel" (belly button) and "semen" (no need to elaborate) in it.  Patti Page-Turner
Nazarak We were looking in the dictionary when we found the word 'Nazarak' it means jackass:) Ryan McIntyre
Nazi Pirate Zombie Ninjas Four humorous memes all in one, and one heck of a humorous image to boot! IHaveNoBrain
Nazz T. Lixx A Motley-ized soundalike for "Nasty Licks." Could be a solo performer or a great name for a guitarist. Hair, anyone?  Chuck Fensch
Nbdy-Crs It's "Nobody Cares," without the vowels, and pronounced "nubbdy curse." It's the curse of nobody caring, but hey, nobody cares, right? some weirdo

Neato Fritos I just say it sometimes. I refuse to use ordinary slang that everyone in the world copies from everyone else and then some. oh yeah and then the first album could be "Fritos are Gross". waverly
Nebula A scientific name, sounds magical. Haizie
The Necco Issue After I got an albino rat (Necco) as a pet, my dad's girlfriend said "Why would you get a rat? they're so disgusting??!!?!" And i said "Leave me alone.

Negative Creep It's an awesome song so I thought it would be a cool band name. Bryce Strecker
Negative Pink We always thought this would make a good name for a female punk band (NeGaTiVe PiNk). It also brings pregnancy tests to mind. BellaAsteria
Negative Sides Of A Square This was one of the many chronic jokes of my 7th grade advanced math class. We were doing something with geometry and square roots, when I suddenly asked "But WHY can't you have a negative side of a square?" I guess this one says 'we do not exist,' or at least 'our existence is questionable.' kelpylion
Negative Zero Error message on a calculator and general overall humor. simmade13
