Spaceship Panda and the Band Names We Passed On

Ricky and I put this band together pretty quickly. Things that normally take a couple of weeks, we managed to cram into a day or two. One of the hardest things to do is to name the band, and that task often takes the longest. Presumably, you'll be using this name a long time, so you better like it.

Our previous band name came about by randomly putting words together...many successful bands come up with their name this way. Screaming Trees? Death Cab for Cutie? Imagine Dragons? 

Anyway, I just found the paper in my purse with names we liked enough to write down. Here you go!
  • Spaceship Panda - this was a close runner up with Sunshine Symphony
  • Fur Taxi - A little too weird
  • Operation Famous Burger - too much like a restaurant
  • Loofah Rigno - hard to spell correctly
  • Naked Quartet - Sets incorrect expectations
  • Sweet Waitress - Just no.
  • Everywhere Sunshine - Hmmm, you see a theme developing
  • Deep Dish Sunshine - Tasty
  • Sunshine Kumquat - Does anyone know what a kumquat is?
  • Stealing Sunshine - This was a top contender. I still like it.
  • Operation: Sunshine - Already taken by a charity
  • Operation: All-Nighter - Close but not exactly a good name when you say it out loud
  • Sunshine Agency - This was also a top contender. Sounds sort of like an insurance agency, though.
  • Tone Agency - Again, is this insurance? 
  • Operation: Tone
  • Rock Doctors - Theme ideas abound with this one
What do you think? Should we have gone with one of our runners' up?
Christine Bainbridge, Sunshine Symphony
