The main point of this article was to teach people it’s ok to think outside the box. Some of these names are possibly a little too different or out there for many, but that’s ok. You could perhaps take small segments from the name and create something unique. Take something that represents your brand and create a play on words around it.

There’s no right or wrong. The point is, the name should represent your band and your branding. Make sure it’s something you want to stick with because changing it once you have an audience isn’t a good idea. Perhaps get family and friends involved if you can’t decide. Let them have the final vote and find something that’s just right for you. sign up for free GIF
