You're not going to get sued by having a same name as another band, you'd just have change it if they had it first. So just go with the best one and if it comes up later that it's already taken go with the second choice.

I came up with one while listening to Lamb of God today. I was intentionally trying to mishear lyrics for fun, and I heard "cheaply made owl" in Omerta. I'm like, "Whoah, that's a great band name."

So, use Cheaply Made Owl.

I made a post about it earlier. I was trying to intentionally mishear lyrics to Lamb of God songs (I was bored) and I heard "cheaply made owl" in Omerta. I'm like, "Damn, that would be a great band name," but then I realized that I don't have a band, and every musician I know is in one already. So, you can have it. Maybe you could release an EP with a picture of an owl with a "MADE IN TAIWAN" tag on it.

hahahahahahahahahhahahahahaha that should be the name of an ep not a band its perfect lol

You can't get sued my some emo fag band on myspace for having the same band name because they only made a myspace account with that, which is as good as a username. They don't have copyright over the name or anything. But you could surely come up with something original. But if you come up with a band name which is popular, you will get sued if they are assholes. They could just ask you to change it.

Search the name of your band in quotes in google and type +band or +music.
If there is a band out there worth it's salt, it'll have a website, or at least a myspace page, or something along those lines. If nothing pops up, you're probably really safe with that name choice.

There was a Hardcore band named "The Devil Wears Prada" (Named after the movie), they had some cool stuff, pretty damn popular around the middle-east states for a while. I dunno what happened to them, but they didn't face any trouble from what I heard.
