"You can call it Yo Momma if you want to."
OK, so that was a suggestion for a song name, but it still conveys my thoughts on band names.
Name it what you want as long as you are not stepping on any local toes. You don't want 2 bands with the same name overlapping each others territory but outside of that who gives a s&!t what you call the band?
IMO people put way too much weight on band names, thinking the name should reflect the bands core philosophy or some other such nonsense. Seriously though, who really cares what the name is? Sure, you may become famous and your band name could become known in every household in America, but the odds of that happening are so long it's laughable to worry about it up front any longer than it takes to draw a name out of a hat or flip a coin or whatever, to decide what to call your group. Not to mention you can always change it before you release your first major label project. Of course you must first land that major label before you need worry overmuch about what America will think of your chosen handle.
I've watched bands break up over naming so these days I make it clear up front I am not a band namer and have no interest in participating in the process. Just send me a memo telling me what name was decided on and I'm GTG.
