What is in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet!
I am afraid I am praying on the good graces of you mustard board genii. There is a new band in Dundee - fiddle, banjo and guitar involving 3 of the fine fellows from this site and we seem to be stuck for a name - or rather we have some ideas but would like better ones please.
What do you consider important in the choosing of a name? Are the best names funny or very serious?; short and snappy or inconceivably long? If you are in a band how did you arrive at your name?
When you consider the well known and, maybe long established bands that are around now do you even consider what their name means anymore or does it just become a name? I remember one of the Capercaillie crew years ago disavowing any responsibility for naming the band (can’t remember which one it was). Other unusual names must include the likes of "Deaf Shepherd". What odd names can you think of that have been used before and do you think it was a good choice?
Anyway that is that - I am done waffling - take the conversation in any direction you want.
