Names -> Cool Band Names -> O, 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.

The Oathtakers This is the band of all the people who were forced to join the school parliament but refused, for greater things. So in the true sense we are the real Cabinet, but cabinet sounds boring. Therefore, OATHTAKERS.  Neeti Nayak
Oaty Tea Looked through an expressions page and, if said out loud, this says OTT (aka Over The Top). Charlie
Obama The Golden Walrus I was lying in bed thinking and it just came to me! Pugscute
OBCT This band is full of over-weight people. OBCT. Which also stands for Over-weight bodies covering toes. Jingle Bells
Oberfeldwebel I used to know a guy who called himself Oberfeldwebel. Technical sergeant in German, I think. I just guess any name over 12 letters is usually good. Chris W
Objects In The Mirror I was sitting in the car one day, and you know that little sticker message that says "Objects in the mirror may be closer than they appear"...? Well, I thought it sounded cool... goofy monkey child
Oblivious Revenge My friend and I were really mad at my cousin because she is so controling. So we made a little band thingy, and this was going to be are name.  Justin

Obscenic Route This band's CD will definitely have one of those "Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics" tags on it. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Obscenity Plurals Some bands (usually punk rock) have names which are in this format (Sex Pistols, Butthole Surfers, etc). I think it's an excellent idea to poke fun at those names. Bold Yelper
Obscure I came up with it when I was listening to Blur. I want to start a band based around Blur because they rule. I shall bring back British pop! And I thought, "Hmm, what's another word for Blur? I ended up with Obscure!! Damon albarn is god!!
Obscure Reference I was looking for one (obscure reference) for a band name and decided it worked on it's own. psychedelicategirl
Obsidian I was looking in the dictionary and doing my English homework. I saw it and thought it would make a pretty sweet band name. It's said the means was "a dark volcanic piece glass or black metal".  Mario
Obvious I came up with obvious by thinking about all our traits. It's obvious we're a pop band, it's obvious we're girls, and it's obvious we're all great! [Ed.'s note: It's obvious that that last statement is an opinion by your band and some of those that have actually heard you play.]  a.saunders
Obvious Door A group of us were writing a script, and someone remarked "The set needs to have an obvious door." I made a note of that - "need obvious door" - and it struck me that Obvious Door just sounds good in phrases like "Please welcome our next act... Obvious Door!" Red Tim
Occam's Razor I heard this term being used on "The Simpsons," and I thought it'd make a cool band name. "The simplest explanation is probably the correct one." Olvan The Terrible
The Occasional Wives Some chick band could use this as a name...a friend showed a list of funny country songs, and "Occasional Wife" struck me as a good band name for some reason. Jeff
Ocean Carvers It has a tropical "theme,sound" to it and it would definetely grab my attention! KeLsEy
Ocean's Suicide I randomly thought of it after seeing a pic of a girl sitting on a rock in the ocean with slit wrists and blood in the water. Linkin Park Soldier
Octane As in high octane gas? A high energy rock band. Indy Gent
Octavious It sounds SO tite. It is the name of this one guy who was a roman. and he was like, caesar. it would be good for a heavy, gothic type rock band. Emilee
October Day It was halloween so me and friends were sitting and talking about different bands and stuff and I came up with this name, I think it's cool though. Cody
Octopus Sphyncter My mom came up with this name. We were watching "Iron Chefs". They always make weird stuff on this show and my mom was like, "what are they doing with that octopus sphyncter?" I don't know, I thought it was a good name. supa fly

Odobenus Rosmarus The scientific name of the walrus. ROCK ON WALRUS! quickstep
Odyssey I was in a car wash and me and my friend were trying to think of a band name. We were looking all over, oily surface, LustraSheild, then finally gave up. A couple minutes later after looking straight ahead for a couple minutes, we both went ODYSSEY. The car ahead of us was a Honda Odyssey. Thus, a band was born. Bryce
Of Mice And Minstrels good Emo band name, play on Of Mice And Men. Calvin
Of Pandas and People. Of Pandas and People is a book about the theory of Intelligent Design, but I thought I sounded cool for a technical hardcore (mathcore) band. ObeseBrutality
Off Beat Kids.  Luke..
Off Limits I think ths would be a sweet name, because it would be so easy to make a symbol, and it sounds awsome! how come
Off The Rocker Just a play on words; taken two different ways, this name could suggest either that your band is a little bit crazy or that you are a one-man Norse guitarist. People would probably enjoy any combo. Alex
Off-Season Santa and the Constipated Elves This was actually a combination of two things that were said by one of my ex-girlfirends. The first was with regard to a pedestrian we saw who looked similar to the Christmas fellow. The other arose from her criticism of a Keebler commercial. Together - what a name! Scott Bendle
The Offbrands  (This is my band's name) It's perfect for a band that has just started and not too popular. Perfect for an Indy band. (Copyright) JK
Offense Intended The opposite of "no offense intended". Any band intentionally trying to shock people would do well with this name. RevengeFromMars YouTube

Okra The name of a rather hideous-tasting vegetable. GlamRockNinjaLord
Old #7 Some friends and I were sitting around getting drunk talking about starting a band. We looked at the label of the bottle and saw the little seal with "Old #7" written on it and we figured that it had kind of a southern rock/metal feel to it which is the type of music we all listen to.  Roger Lee Sills Jr.
Old Doctor Young Was the character name of the radio physician whose series Mary Ann listened to on "Gilligan's Island". She had a dream about it after some misinformation led her to believe that she ate poisonous mushrooms. (It turned out her boyfriend wrote a Dear Jane letter from home, and she didn't like him anyway.) oldtimer
Old Grandma's Lunchbox seriously think about it...who is cooler than grandma....she makes you food...gives you money and gifts...the occasional ride now and then...and we all know grandma's food is the best so...that is where the whole lunchbox thing came into play...it is just the coolest bandname.... rENeN
Old Guy With a Death Wish All of the country singers in Australia are really, really OLD. green
Old Jeans Forgive From my college days-when we were comforted to see our jeans still fit after self-induced, alcohol-induced bloating. Melissa
Old Men Die In New Suits I thought this was cool, as most old people are richer than younger people. It's different. Alison*
Old Moldy Apples (OMA) I left an apple in my locker after lunch one day and forgot about it. I visited my locker again a few weeks later with my friend Wes, and he pointed out the old, moldy apple in my locker. At the time we were discussing band names. It could work. DaTDawgg

Olde Nasty Plastique Babies my band name. we thought old ratty baby dolls would be a cool grungy rock icon. also if there plastique you can blow them up. thats always cool. tom
Olive One Martini Zero This is my description of a horrible martini. The olive always comes through, and if you are keeping score...... this makes sense. dave miller- manny
Olive U. F***ov Just another punk rock name, never used, up for grabs. hamtramckmike
Oliver Clothesoff Just like the play on words: "Take 'Oliver Clothesoff'". Gideon McCain
Oliver Klozov If you read it carefully it speaks for itself. It's actually the name of an X-rated model website, but it's still a wicked name. OOglebooze
OliveSmell I like olives and the smell of them Andy
Olivia Neutron Bomb Olivia is da bomb. hugh askew
Ollie-Gator The name Ollie-Gator was made up not by me, but by my step mom. She thought up this name when she created an e-mail address for me. Although, Ollie-Gator is only 99% origanal because I heard that a long time ago there was a cheesy cartoon character apparently called Wally Gator. But still, don't you think that would be an awsome band (possibly rock) name?  Oliver
oMega it's the last laten letter it is like the letter "z" maryanne
The Omega Imperative I've thrown around this name as the name of a band I was forming, but it doesn't work for alt/metal, it's more for electronic hardcore. killer_roach
The Omega Males In Greek, alpha is the first letter while omega is the last. So this band is the opposite of "the alpha males". RevengeFromMars YouTube
Omega Power A guy in my class invented it and in the end of the school year everyone kept repeting it even though we still donĀ“t know what the hell it means. SaRa
omga code its really cool beause it makes me think of this one movie thats way cool charlotte
Omididi Simply cool and unpredictable aldy rizaldy
omiflippingod How I felt when I found out that our first single was going to sink without a bloody trace. Dammit. I should try again sometime. Exocet
On Hold Again My friend made up this band name. When she told me I immediately thought "awesome band name!" It's got rhythm and could totally awesome as plain initials too...OHA molly
On Hold Since 1993 I think it's cool, just because it tells how the world makes you wait even when your ready. Marcopolo21
On Silence you would think of something silent as being off.... like a radio or tv or a nagging wife for that matter... but when silence is on, that's when you're creative thoughts are at their best, cause all you hear is the silence that is on in your head... does that work?? brad
On Stage I think On Stage would be a cool name for a band that plays a lot of live shows, because it describes where they're performing. Yvette Bristle
On The Brink This name represents the band that wants to be different from all the other typical bands. They are on the brink of discovering a new sound and a new meaning behind their music. Izgottfro
On the Edge of Forever & Never I really don't know why I like it, but it just came to me. Good Heritage
On The Fiddle Suitable for a folky/trad/acoustic band, especially one without a fiddle player...but don't tell the Benefits Agency. John
On The Line Me and my friends entered a battle of the bands and our drummer (who vomitted up before the gig) said, "There's a lot on the line". We thought he was talking to us calling us "On The Line". Before that, we were called Dr. Scrote And The Stoats, so a slight improvement! Antler
On The Other Side WEll, i thought it sounded interesting... Everyone always thinks if just "that one thing" was different, life would be so much greater, but you will never by truly happy. I CAN SEE IT...... Band name: On the other side, debut album "The Grass is Always Greener".... i know its cliche, but its something everyone needs to realize..... we'd be a mellow punk-pop-ish band..... Jesyka
On The Sidewalk Bleeding Read a story with the title and thought it was sorta a sick band name. Travis
Onautumn Okay, when me and my band were looking for a name, we were really running out of ideas. I'm a real Offspring fan, so as a joke I said "How 'bout Onautumn" (The exact opposite to the Offspring). Yes I do know what Offspring really means, but I just thought this way was better. No Hero
Oncoming Traffic My hard rock band, (bringing it back to real rock 'n' roll, 70s stuff, AC/DC, etc.) is called Oncoming Traffic. It is just cool. We almost lost a drummer because of oncoming traffic. My fault. Long story. Remember this name, you'll hear someday. Rock on!  AC/DC rules
One Bottle Of Wine And A Cheeta I have theese unfinished C02 cars and one of them looks like a bottle of wine and my Home Ec. teacher [who will be mentioned in a different band name] told me that my other C02 car should be painted like a cheeta.  phamilto
One Crow Sorrow I got it from the movie The Crow: City of Angels. In the movie, Ashe recites a poem with this line in it.  The Crow
One Dollar Bill Blink-182 went on a tour that cost only one dollar. So I came up with the name one dollar bill. smiley
One Eyed Monsters  J_Col
One For The Gipper After the Notre Dame running back George Gipp. When he was dying of cancer, Gipp told coach Knute Rockne to instruct his teammates to "Win one for the Gipper". So one for the Gipp would be like a victory song or anthem.  Rocky
One Headlight my friend and i listened to a song over and over that was about a girl who comit suicide, and the refrane went "we could drive it home with one headlight". we were trying to figur out what it ment, and i thought that it ment the girl comit suicide `cuz she only had one headlight, and all the guys teased her =) Nikke
One Hit Wonder I wish I'd thought of it but I didn't. I just saw this is a real band listed on a synthpop album compilation called Spacesynth Revolutions on Amazon. It's quite clever really. When someone says they're a "one hit wonder" they can say yes we really are. Somebody should've thought of this years ago. Edward
One Hundred Percent Less Napier This was printed on the cover of our slacker tabloid "Nuvo" about 6 years ago. (Jeff) Napier was a columnist who took the title personally and quit right after this issue went to press. Well, not all publicity is good publicity, especially for the ones covering it. Indy
One Knuckle Head After Another Rotten Ricky came up with this one at work one day, talking about the clients we had to deal with was like dealing with "one knuckle head after another". Sounded like a cool band name to us. Indigo Dan
One Last Sundown Thought it was pretty cool :L thats all really :) Harrison
One Man Empire I was gonna name my band this 'cause I liked the sound of it, but then in all the exitement of playing shows and what no, it just slipped my mind...damn. grizzy-b
One Night In Paris It would just sound awsome for a punk or indie band. People would come see you just for the name. cjb043
One Night Stand it has several meanings on different levels - mostly becaus I thought that once we spend the night at your place , we probably would never be invited back.. art b
One Punch and Down It's from World's Dumbest. When someone was knocked out after one punch on an episode. Brendon Walsh would say "one punch and down" JeReMy
One Single Rose I just think it sounds like a good name for some band with a female singer (named Rose?), and the rest of the band guys. mdpsinger
One Step Down i just thought of it on a bus when i was coming home from rugby practise Sam McCourt
One String Missing I was using the crapper and realized that my buddy was playing on a guitar that had only five strings. One of the strings were broken so I just thought it as a band's name. I might use it for my band. heh!  Emo
