Bands Named After Planets & Space

Bands Named After Planets & Space

We'd like to introduce our new Space & Planet style to our Band Name Generator. With a simple click, you can generate all sorts of band names based off of planet names, astronomy and space terms.

We were recently inspired to add this feature when researching bands named after planets. It turns out there are quite a few and we've grouped our favorites below.

We found it interesting that Uranus seemed to be the least popular planet to name a band after while Mars, Mercury and Earth were the most popular. Do you have a band named after a planet or star? If so, let us know in the comments.
