Riffing off the first one, how about June's Cleaver?

I would go to see bands named:

The Junes
The Tinglers
Boss Car

The others, not so much.

Bands I would like to form (but probably never will, so feel free to pillage):

Killer Whales
Brigand Jones
The Greene
Sun Cult Record Party

But otherwise The Junes or even just Junes is pretty nice.

The June Brides were a favorite band of mine back in the day.

Junes is a really good band name. I like dropping the 'the'. As opposed to The The.

I used to have a file on my computer called BNE for "Band Names Etcetera'. I wonder what happened to it? The ones I remember, some of which are certainly taken now:

JUST ONE DOG (a comic my wife used to write)

The best-name band I was ever in was called EARCANDY. I think we had the seeds of genuine greatness, too, but apart from a bit of radio play nothing ever really happened, partly because the drummer's heart wasn't in it and he had a career starting to happen in post. I should dig out some of the demos and post them.

PS Schnurr was the name of a toilet manufacturer in Guelph, Ontario. I used to have an awesome tin ashtray in the shape of a lavatory with SCHNURR wriitten on it.

I'd go with The Junes. Then I'd wait for someone to say "funny, but you don't look Juneish".

If you DON'T go with The Junes I'll have to steal it.

unSane, you could always consider "The Julys".

You know, most of the months are not too shabby. Ditto weekdays although I suppose all of them are taken to some extent. I'd be the Wednesdays I think. Hump day.

The Junes is really good... it seems like it's not trying as hard as the others.

I take back what I said about TV Ugly. Do you have any examples of what your band sounds like? I'd like to give it a listen before suggesting a name.

Nthing The Junes. Also, June's Cleaver. Love it.

I like the Junes, too.
The Barry White Srtipes is probably a better choice...

I've always been partial to the [body part][tool] pattern.

Ass Hammer
Brain Vacuum
Ear Wrench
Tongue Pliers

Just to name a few...

You may note that I'm not exactly swimming in groupies, so this may be an anti-pattern.

Haha, I was in a band called Meat Hammer (and still use that as a nickname when I go bowling, go-kart racing, and things like that).

I have a friend in a fairly successful band named August, so there's some evidence that month names work out OK.

I like The Junes myself, but I also like the band name Pop Secret, so what the hell do I know?
