New Wave Band Name Generator

Generate a list of potential names for your new wave band!

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


Yes! It is free for anyone to use.

The new wave genre of music came out of the quirky pop of the 70s and 80s.

Keeping this in mind, try using this context to help you come up with something to put in the generator.

Or try coming up with a simple word that captures the heart of your band.

Then plug that word into the generator to see what comes up!

Popular new wave band names include:

  • Velvet Underground
  • Talking Heads
  • Devo

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

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

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

Try looking up some of your favorite new wave 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 new wave 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!
