Names -> Cool Band Names -> W, 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:
William Walker and the Fillibusters These guys were outlaws at the end of the 19th century who tried to invade Latin American countries to expand the US. But it also works as a rock band name if you can find someone named William Walker. JR
Willow Bee Rose Named after "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" witch and all around good girl Willow Rosenberg. From that episode where her magic goes wrong, and points of light are swarming on her like bees. buffy
Wimps Anonymous What Derrick (Jason Bateman) suggested to Ricky (Rick Schroeder) where to go to on a "Silver Spoons" episode. It's a group of girly men. t.v.
Win For Losers You may have won the school chess competition but you may still be a loser. RevengeFromMars YouTube
The Wind Wanderers It's a good name for an Alternative band.... E-r Martin
Windex Cocktail Okay, this is really nerdy. You know the first scene in Star Wars where you see Luke's aunt and uncle? Well, his aunt is pouring this bright blue liquid out of some sort of mixer. I remember saying "Looks kinda like a Windex Cocktail'. (I was later informed by my even geekier friend that its supposed to be 'blue milk'.) I figure its a good way to kill off, say, Keith Richards. Was considered by a friend of mine's band before they decided not to be a band anymore. Gizmo
Windex Shampoo It is a really cool name. It can't possibly happen, because Ammonia D in hair isn't a good idea.  Mr. Dirty
Windle Poons An ancient wizard of Terry Pratchett's Discworld books who dies then becomes undead. I just think it'll be cool for a band/singer with funny and bizarre songs.  Litestar
Window Side Affair I have a relationship with this guy and he comes to my window sometimes at night so I can let him in and we hang out while my moms asleep =] I think its kinda catchy, plus it has a special meaning to us. Ris
Winged Wombats Okay, now take a wombat. If you don't know what one looks like, it's basically a giant guinea pig rat. Look it up. Anyway, imagine it with wings. Now put a guitar in its paws. Hahaha Brilliant.  Andrew Bent
Wings of a Duck It's just funny. Me and my bandmates were trying to come up with a name and one shouted Wings of a Demon! I said bit too heavy what about wings of a duck.  Ethan O'Brien
Wings Of Black Flame A random line from an X-Men comic that my brother thought would make a good metal band name. IHaveNoBrain
Winona's Alibi I came up with it from listening to her everchanging excuses for shoplifting. It's cool for obvious reasons. + She IS very good looking. this is my band's name by the way... so go make up your own.  Fredie Vinson
Winston Churchill's Chamber Pot  I found the picture of it on toilets of the world (on a web site.) LMAO. i anit telll u
Winter Of A Broken Heart I think this sounds cool, because I just lost my daughter and the baby I was pregnant with in a car accident the day after Christmas. So now all I can think about is how much this hurts, since it's winter, I think it just kinda goes together. [Ed.'s note: I am sorry to here about your tragedy. Our prayers are with you.] Jadey poo
The Winter Peppers It's the opposite of a summersalt Winter Pepper
The Winter Warlocks Named after the bad wizard-turned-good Winter Warlock (voiced by Keenan Wynn) from "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town". It's cool because it teaches a novice band to "put one foot in front of the other". ;) cartoon cartoon

With Bloodshot Eyes It is from a song by (the band) Bullet For my Valentine. One of my favorite bands, it could be a metal band. Eric S
With Or Without I thought of it it when I was assigned a project to create a band. I think it's cool because it expresses the need to move on "with or without" anybody who disagrees. Bert
With X's On Her Hands One time i went to a club/bar and since we were underage they put those X's on ur hands,my friend said it and it jus stuck!i really like it though. punk music

Wizards of the Boast Sounds like a slightly nerdy rap or hip-hop group. RevengeFromMars YouTube
The Wizards Of Whoopee It's alliteral, which is always cool. And it has the term whoopee, which is slang for sex. Wizards are cool in general. Richard Head
WiZDOM Uhhh, well, I recently found a game entitled "NiGHTS into Dreams" and the main boss of the game is named Wizeman. I screwed it up a bit and out pops WiZDOM. I think it would be suited to either a darker band or something absolutely insane. *wink* LordBlumiere

WKSTLNK "Weakest Link" with no vowels. Junior
Wolcott Mill Metropark When I was living in the States, one day I was in RE class with some friends and we found these stickers that had this name on it and we thought it was really cool. Aussie Chick
The Wolf Gang Actually, I used this name up for an unmade sequel to "The Lost Boys" featuring a street gang of wolves, but it could also work for an alternative chamber music quartet.  overit

Wren Bait Imagine some fat dude setting a trap for songbirds in the park--like a box with a stick propping it up, that you pull a string to take out the stick and under the box there is some birdseed--hiding in a bush waiting for some birdies. I actually got this by spelling stuff really bad for fun, running it through spell check, and picking the first suggestion.
