Coming up with a great band name isn’t as easy as it used to be. Decades ago, you didn’t need to think about how difficult it would be to Google your band’s name, nor did you need to deal with thousands of new bands stealing all the good names each week. Despite how tricky band names have become, we have a tool here that will make life a whole lot easier for you.
The Band Name Generator on this page does exactly what you think it does. You give it a small piece of information, and it creates thousands of potential naming ideas for you. The tool is free, doesn’t require any downloads, and you can use it over and over again. Let’s get started!
Band Name Generator: How does it work?
Before we do anything, we need you to enter a keyword. The best thing to do here is to use your first name, as that’s usually the best place to start when creating a band name. However, if you don’t want your name incorporated, you can use any keyword you like. Just make sure it’s less than 20 characters in length and only uses numbers and letters.
With your name (or keyword) in place, hit the GENERATE button. Instantly, you’ll get 24 potential band names that incorporate your keyword.
If you like a band name on this first page of results, we highly recommend Googling it and making sure it’s not already in use. Is the web domain available? Are Twitter, Instagram, and Bandcamp handles available? Be sure to check all this out before committing! Use the COPY button to copy your potential new band name and do these searches.
Unfortunately, some people won’t like the first two dozen choices our Band Name Generator creates. If that happens, hit the GENERATE MORE button to get 24 new names. If one of those names works for you, hit the STAR button. Then hit the GENERATE MORE button again and keep going, starring names you like as you go.
When you’ve saved enough names, hit the SAVED IDEAS button. This is where all your potential band names are. Hit the DOWNLOAD button to get a text file so you can keep them all safe. Conversely, hit the DELETE ALL button if you want to start over from the top.
