maybe try going to the band naming thread, in the promote your band forum... that might help

also TBBotP sounds like a band that would catch fire, wasted opportunity right there

i used a lot of thesaurus.com, and looked through pages and pages of greek mythology and zodiac symbols, and looked through millions of pages in the dictionary for cool words, and often i would back up and try to think of what type of music my band made and what we wanted to portray.

it took forever for me, so i feel your pain bro.

looking through great quotes, literary works, mythology, science fiction, or anything about the occult is sometimes helpful, but usually it just strikes you and all of the research was pointless.

I don't want anything cheesy, stupid, or religious. And my drummer doesn't want anything too "anti-christ"

I have a list of a few hundred names I came up with for my middle school band. I chose "The Flaming Shits," since most of my songs were about bodily functions.

I say just come up with whatever and don't think about it too hard.

If you of names like The Who, The Beatles, The Doors, and AC/DC, they're not really anything too special, its just the fact that they're legendary bands is what makes the name sound good.

I'm sure that no matter what you name your band, if you became as big as one of those bands your name won't sound weird.

People will only really think of the name the first or second time they hear it. After it becomes a common thing to them it won't stand out as much.


EDIT: And if I were you I would choose " " as your band name so people wouldn't say your name, they'd just sigh and roll their eyes.

The name did not make the band great. The great bands made their names famous. Not the other way around.

No, I don't want some crazy awesome name, I just want a decent band name. I can't think of anything original and that still makes sense. (We all of think of lame names such as "Subliminal Masterminds" and random/lame things)

But seriously, that's what the drummer of my band first suggested when we were coming up with names for our band.


See what I mean.. Unoriginal

easy, just have John Entwisle make fun of your band, in his slander will lie an amazing band name.
