    This.

    But seriously, there's no formula to it, and a name that a forum comes up with won't be half as effective at describing your music as one you coin yourselves.

    Although, I think three of my projects names are the most-prog names ever:

    Infinity Complex
    Nihilistic Desecration
    Of The Rapture Born...

    Too bad one of those is all-but-defunct (Rapture), ND is a brutal DM band, and IC is becoming less prog every day. :lol:

    Pick up Grey's Anatomy. I'm sure there's some cool medical term you could use.

    I'd aim for something memorable, unique, and well, something you won't hear anywhere else. Always pick a band name that will make you pop up first on google! Our band is named Enxcet, which is a portmanteau of 3 words (though giving them away would make our name make sense so thats a no no :D) and if you google us, all you will find is us.

    Wait, You can start bands with names from bands who already exist?

    Fuuuuuck.

    Guys, I'm starting this band called Metallica. It's going to be super sick.

    Probably won't get anything from here. Just think of any themes or concepts that you're trying to convey with your music and go with something that will compliment them.

    Look through your song titles and see if any of them work.

    Either that, or The Onion Solution. Always loved that one.
