Default Band Name?!

So, my newest band is called Baby Huey, and we play psychedelic blues rock.

My lead guitarist, his girlfriend, my wife and most of the people I've met hate the name. I'm neutral on it, so I don't care.

But now we're trying to come up with a name, and I suck at it, so I thought, "Why not ask the folks on drummerworld?"

Any ideas out there for band names?

I like Baby Huey. Very original. I mean, how many people liked the name "Jethro Tull" the first time they heard it?

Dude, a road around where I live has the coolest band name:

Chancellor's Run.

I tried, but members immediately went "HAHA NO."

Yes, Baby Huey sounds daggy. I'd go for Umbilical Hugh. Or even Umbilical Hue or Newborn Hue ...

Lol Jer, I'd hate to merge the two! Really, there's a band round these parts called "Touching Cloth". Don't you just love it! Can't imagine them getting many wedding gigs, lol!

One of my favourite names for a fusion band is "Audio Alchemy". Just so paints a picture, although a little high brow for some.

My very very very favourite band name is reserved for me to use for a future uber heavy funk band I'd love to form (sigh). Sorry, just typed it out, then instantly deleated it. Trust you guys, but them lurkers, hmmmm. Voyers, the bloody lot of ya! C'mon you secret sissys, sign up & get involved!

A local radio show here in Omaha keeps track of all the great band names they accidentally come up with while talking about the news of the day. There may be a gem in there somewhere.

If yer wanna get a bit 'RAW' here's one I came up with a few days ago...

Reverend Felch and the Gerbil Lollypops

Can't see them getting too many wedding gigs either!

How's About...

Tasting Terrapins
Static Relocation
Improvised Calendar
Revert to Type
The Impending Past
Vital Stamina
Multitude of One
Social Rapport
Silent Decibels
The Salient Majority
Born Before

Very Special Guests (or just Special Guests) - Imagine when supporting other bands - on the posters "with Very Special Guests" lots might turn up expecting Bob Dylan or someone - lol!

I vote for Sound Medication, Chromium Starship and Touching Cloth.

My girlfriend and I were joking about starting an extreme metal band called BARNIKAL! (barnacle) and I always wanted a band called Sergent Sodomy and the Sunshine Band or Wonderpus and the Shine Vibrations. The merch would sell itself.

No joke, I actually am in a punk band called Anal Seapage (Seepage, the error is deliberate)

Btw, Zikos. "The Grrin & Dig It, Gettin' With It, Hoochy, Coochy Rythem Band" is oficially the best band name ever. It'll be the name of my fantasy band with Little Richard.
