Names -> Cool Band Names -> O, Page 2

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.

One Trick Phony This cover band only plays one-hit-wonders. RevengeFromMars YouTube
One Versus World I thought about it at church one day thinking that to live for God, you must keep yourself from becoming a part of the negative, and slowly but sadly un- Christian world where religion is a thing of the past. This name really rises above the rest I think, mainly because you're on your own when living and representing Jesus Christ in a world of chaos, and you must identify yourself seperately. Zach J.-Magnolia, TX
One-Man Fag Parade My brother's friend likes to say random things. IHaveNoBrain
Oneforfour I have three best friends, so in all we're four. I chose a slight spin off of the 3 Musketeers ("all for one and for all"). But instead one for four! Camden
ONEOFOUR Its just a thing that stuck with me because it was the first three digits of the license plate # of a chick I deflowered in her Ford Explorer. head stomp
The Ones That Got Away Has anyone ever heard of Lady and the Tramp 2? That was the Tramp's nickname, 'the one that got away'. It would be for a band like Snow Patrol. I made it up sitting here! Umiyuri
Onestone Onestone - for obvious reasons. but also a cool analogy for 'once stone(d)'. Meghdutt
Oni i heard it,, some where. Oni means i think Diablo, or a gang somewhere in japan Carl Ramos
Onionhead It just has been in my head for a week with no purpose...having it on this site will give it purpose. G
Onka Donka Tonka I play today hooray!! Bone Stien
The Only Alternative and the Other Possibilities I thought it up in the 60s and hearing a lot of other acid-inspired wacky band names. I'm not sure of their repertoirs, but all of their songs make a very positive pro-choice statement and that's definitely cool. slyfox1
Only Heaven Knows When someone doesn't know the answer, they say "Only Heaven knows" sometimes right? It's a good phrase. Aly McGugan
Onward Crispin Glover Who doesn't remember the actor Crispin Glover?!?! I was walking up the street one day, and saw some dude with a t-shirt that said, "Onward Christian Soldier," and the name Crispin Glover just popped in my head. A good name for a punk band, don't you think?  Elizabeth
Onyx Toll I went through the thesaurus looking up synonyms for two words. (If you can guess them you win an interwebz cookie.) It came out with Onyx Toll, which is a cool name all by itself. LordBlumiere
OOM! I read it off my friends top in a mirror, with a picute of a cow on it :) it's just the coolest Enid
The Oopses How many bands were ever good? These guys were accidents. Ian
Oozing Pus Wouldn't this be a cool name for a metal band? Maybe what would happen to your ears from listening to them? Mr. Tinkles
Opal Gauntlet The name of an enchanted piece of armor in the video game "Final Fantasy," plus the expression "running the gauntlet" means going through a series of ordeals. The possibilities for this band name are limitless. Olvan The Terrible

The Open Pull Push Handle Kinda catchy? Well I think so anyway. I read it on a sign on a bus and changed it all around a bit!  Gatesy

Open Shutter When I think of shutter I think of shut, but if this is an open shutter, it's unique. Kevin
Open-Minded Twin Sister think dating a twin is cool? imagine the possibilities hamofthegray
Opening Page While I was browsing this site, I look down the status bar and saw OP... and the rest is in my history button. my name?
Operation Star Well in math we were talking about operations. (Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) My teacher was making tables, and for one of them he made up an operation he called "star." Then he said something about the table and referred to the operation as "Operation Star." I thought it would make an interesting pop-rock band name. amanda
Operation: Japanese Hippos No, not from Master of Disguise. I was watching a local performance called 'Mirage' and one of the characters was talking on the phone...he said something about hippos in Tokyo, so...here we go. therealdeepblue
Operatonica Sounds musically. Many vocals. Elegant and important. Jake

oprige nina I was in history and we were learning about Ivan the Terrible. He formed a group called Oprige Nina, which means "secret police". dj
Optical Illusion The band name comes from my favorite movie of all time, "Donnie Darko". The name just sounds really cool and is so original! You have to love original, because hardly anyone is these days. Holden
Optical Rehash opened up a dictionary, pointed a two words: optical, rehash. cool huh? name248
Optimism Enema Have you ever met someone that just completely rids you of any ounce of happiness you had in your mind? SpongeBob SquarePants's Lady Friend
Optimus Rhyme A play of words on 'Optimus Prime' from Transformers. Could be the name of some rapper. Geno
Optipossible Old saying that I say to my friends when they are being stupid. Alex
Opus 38 Cool name for a punk band. Its taken from an essay by James Thurber about people who name their dogs things that don't mean anything. Its perfect for a band that doesn't want a meaningful name. Spikenard38
Opus; Life of a Penguin Opus is a kickass cartoon. I think he's a penguin. Yeah, whatever. Rock on. nobody
Oral Incident I read it on some dental medication packaging. PJ Redden
Oral Sextet I was thinking of a group of six singers. What else? Tess O. Gosset
The Orange Barrel Crew Orange barrels, obstacles that close driving lanes under construction, are everywhere on interstates all across America. Here's a salute to the people who have to work by them. party

Orange Fetusi It sounds..odd..it came from meeting an orange, which looked like a fetus at the time....and my freind says "i" to pluralize anything..so fetusi.... the incredible myself
Orange Fuzzy Balls Over March Break we were playing pool, and we were talking about my friend's cat who is getting nuttered so that led to talking about Orange Fuzzy Balls. Stephanie and Brittny

Orange Striped Jacket Hood  rachelle
Orange Twilight It's cool because the name is the color twilight would be if it weren't before the haze. Bob Barker

Orangutan Breakfast cuz it sounds delicious Mike
Order Sixty Six This is the plan that Palpatine executes in Star Wars: Episode 3. This is the plan to kill all the Jedi. Anonymous Cool Guy
The Ordinary Phenomenon The Ordinary Phenomenon would be a cool name because it doesn't make sense. It's like an oxymoron, you know? Phenomenon means something extraordinary and unusual...so how could it possibly be ordinary? MZ and Da BZ
Oregon Trail From the title of the classic computer game. They could be a bluegrass or country band from Oregon. (Or Independence, Missouri, of course.) And they could sing about getting typhoid and dysentery, running out of food, or having thieves break into their trailers and steal their clothes. (Trust me. If you played the game, you'd find this hilarious.) Olvan The Terrible
Organ Transplants They would all play organs, of course! Odie Garfield
Organized Conformity Was an idea for the band I am in, good for political bands with negative views on religion. anarchydude@oldschoolpunk.com

Orgasm Spasm I was in my bedroom on to my hooro my brother was watching porn and it looked like the woman in it was having an orgasm spasm..so i thought it would be cool for a band name, hehe Nat
The Orgasmic Hamburgers It's something a guy said on some lame reality show once. It just stuck in my head. rachel
Orgasmic Pig and the Screaming Vomit Weenies I post this in remembrance of my middle school band director. (The name actually came from his head) Sad thing is, it's the only thing I remember about him. I can't even remember his name. Frizznank
Oricle Spelt with an "A" and not an "I." But to make this one stand out, we added the "I" to give it an extra added mystery about it. It also sounds great with "the" infront of it as well. Got the idea from the Matrix. "The Oracle shall tell you your destiny." Igotyagood
The Origin of Sound I got the idea from the name of Muse,s album the origin of symmetry  Amy
Orpheus Orpheus is the greek god of music! it sounds kick ass! does in not? Krysten
Oryon's B3LT/Oryon This is probably gonna be the weirdest explanation, but here goes. I was trying to think of a name for a band that I just drew on paper, made up of three characters from a show I like. That show is often crossed over as fanfiction with the Harry Potter series. I had just finished reading the fifth book, in which a character by the name of Sirius had died. Sirius is the 'dog star', and I learned about a few of the largest stars that day. So, turns out that there's a belt of three stars, Orion's Belt. Sounded cool to me! So, I cameup with 'Oryon' and 'Oryon's B3LT' so that it might stand out more. I might use just plain 'Orion' or 'Orion's Belt', however. So, I went from making a name for a fictional band, to naming mine after a star! Um...yeah. Derakii (kume_angel@hotmail.com)
Osama Been Skatin' just look at it...self-explanitory. I'm a fashion design major and I ultimately want to make skatewear. So my buddy matt and I were conspiring (half-assedly) and that's what we got. Haha, YEAH!  emily
Osama's Magic Carpet i got this frum an AIM buddy icon on quickbuddyicons.com, where osama bin laden wuz riding on a magic carpet with a missile right behind him go me
Oscar Mayer Mayhem It just...well, it sounds rad to begin with, but bologna can definately cause some chaos..."squeek" Renee
Osmium (or Osmium/Iridium) Just perfect for a "heavy metal" band, since this metal is the densest on the Periodic Table of elements. Actually the element Iridium is so close in density to Osmium, it could be used as well, or in combo. Jim Eckert
Osmosis Jones It was a 2001 movie with Bill Murray and Chris Rock. I thought of it's coolness as a band name when I was flipping throught the channels when it was on. JeReMy
Otaku Technically, it's Japanese for "you and yours." But currently, it's used to mean "nerd" or "geek". However Japan fans in America use it to mean "Japan fan". I'm a Japan fan. We need an Otaku band. Amy
The Other Direction For all the people who hate 1D, just to make your band sound cooler.... I just thought of it right now.... joajdiuhihf
Other Natural Flavors It's on a lot of soda's. That's about it. And they probably aren't even natural, they're probably artificial. No One
The Other Shoe Hmm...I just go around listening for things in conversations and when I hear something that sounds like a cool band name, I write it down. This is the best I've heard so far. Eddie

Otterpoppy This is my band name, we suck,and we have an accordian and harmonica in our tunes, but I have always loved the way Otters can swim so well, they are just kick a** animals Otter
OU812 I was playing PS3 with my friend and he singed in with OU812 as his password Wal-Mart
Ouija  My grandma's friend told me that Ouija boards summon evil spirits, so it would be cool for a metal band. Rachel
Ounce of Neptune It was supposed to be our band's name, but our drummer suggested us to find a better one Clarence
Our 7 Deadly Sin It's scary to know you have done (some of the) seven deadly sins. It just sends tingles down your back, now wouldn't you want your fans to get tingles when they hear you? India
Our Motive It asks you the questionwhat is the motive, and to what. That is what my band is named. I came up with it while listing to The Offspring. Ski
Ournamelooksintense A name i came up with for poking fun at bands with spaceless names like Alexisonfire and Iwrestledabearonce. Jonathan S.
The Ourselves We had a gig coming up but no band name, we just decided that it would be cool if we said after the final song "thank you we've been ourselves" DaveTHErave

Out Of Tuna Thought this one up after hearing an awful performance by a local band. Anonymous Jones
Out On Bail Recently, my mates and I got into some trouble with the police and to get things of our mind. We were thinking off starting a band, it hasn't happened yet though. However, I noticed that all of us have been on bail for the past 2 1/2 months because it kept getting extended and the name just came out. Ech
Out Past Curfew i just thought of sneakin out past my curfew n there it was Saja
Out To Lunch Saw a sign with 'Out To Lunch' on. Thought it'd be cool. Antony
Outcast Angel I heard it in the Stephen Lynch song called 'Beelz'. It's hilarious. In the beginning he says this, and I thought it was awesome. Gabe
Outhouse My friends and I were trying to think of a band name, and we said Bath House. My friend, who goes camping a lot and actually uses outhouses, said "Hey, what about Outhouse!" And my friends and I were like, "What?" And he goes, "You know, a place were you take a shit when ther'es no regular toilet around." So, that's what we decided...on not using. Matt
Outstanding Confirmists It's a cool oxymoron-ish name for a political band Greg
Overblued It came up when we realized that all the songs that we played were all sad love songs. niko salazar
Overdose I am trying to think of bandnames for my band...and this one came up in my mind...I probably wouldn't use it for the fear of someone thinking we're a drug band...but hey if there's a band called "Dope" why not overdose? Molly
