Cool Band Name Generator

Generate a list of potential names for your band!

Describe your band in one word.
Then enter it into the band name generator.


Yes! It is free for anyone to use.

Cool band names are very subjective. 

Also, bands and their names often become cool only after they become popular. 

For instance, many think that the Rolling Stones is a cool band and band name. 

But if you take a similar naming convention and named your band the Tumbling Pebbles, that may not sound very cool to you. 

In short, I think you could name your band almost anything you want and, if your music is popular, your band and band name will likely achieve cool status. 

That said, many popular bands use simple words in their names like the Rolling Stones, Coldplay, the Beatles, the Beach Boys, etc. 

With this in mind, throw a fun word in the generator and see what comes up!

Cool band names include:

  • U2
  • The Weeknd
  • Fleetwood Mac

Use the tool above to get even more ideas of cool band names!

But know that the tool uses words from several bands to generate potential names for your band.

So I don’t recommend putting a popular band’s name into the tool because then you might get some duplicate name ideas!

Try looking up some of your favorite music lyrics to see if a word sticks out to you there.

And if you’re still having trouble coming up with a word to put in the cool band name generator, try coming up with something your bandmates have in common.

For instance, if you’re all from a particular city, you could throw that city in the generator.

Don’t overthink it, and feel free to hit generate as many times as you need to find something you like!
