What's In A Name?

So, you have a band, and you are looking for a cool name. But, you don't know where to start. Well, look no further. Here, we will provide you with tips for coming out with a new name. Let's get to work!

Using a Band name generator

This is the easiest and, perhaps, the most efficient ways to name your band. The generator is an online tool that helps you come up with random band names. Just use the tool and list down the potential names you might like. Use your creativity, play with the names and try replacing words if you must.

A piece of warning: The Generator uses random words to create band names. Before you finalize a name, make sure the name is not already in use by another band.

Using words or sentences that means something significant to you

One great way to come up with a great name is picking up something for you. It can be a name of a place, your favourite chocolate, your childhood love, whatever. the possibilities are endless! One most common example would be Linkin Park. The members named the band after a street called Lincoln Park. Rest, as we know, is history.

Brainstorm random words for you band name

This is one method to brainstorm a name. Basically, it is a mix of both the pointers above. No matter how silly or stupid the name sounds, just jot them down. Sit with your band and brainstorm the session for a name, no matter how long it takes. It is evident that some place or the other, there might be another band with the same name as yours, but it is better to lessen that chance. Set yourself apart.

Let your music speak

Naming a band is cool, but don't forget the reason you started the band. It's about music, and just music. Don't let your band name decide what genre of music you should be playing. The name is secondary; the music is primary. Spend time to research a band name, but practice your music with the same vigour.
