How did the band No Doubt come up with their name?
It was one of their band mate John Spence's favorite saying "no doubt". Before the band made it big John commited suicide by hanging himself at a park in Anaheim, Ca.

They took the name Paramore, which is derived from the maiden name of the mother of one of the group's former bassists during the time in which they were "still playing in the… garage"; once the group learned the meaning of the homonym paramour ("secret lover"), they decided to adopt the name, using the Paramore spelling.
to really get a good band name pick up a dictionary and just close your eyes and open to a random page and then randomly put your finger down on that page and boom there is yo…ur band name. Led Zeppelin did it twice LED and ZEPPELIN (this is from a new person ) one time me and my friends couldn't come up with on so we got 2 of my hats and ripped up a butch of paper in one hat we put adjectives and in the other wee put nouns we choose one out of watch until we got a good name then i realized my band sucked we had a singer or pianist, a clarinetist or pianist, a flutist , and another flutist.(now I'm a flutist and trumpeter) :) thats a good way to come up with a name
Joe Elliot simply proposed the name "Deaf Leopard", which was originally a band name he thought up while writing reviews for imaginary rock bands in his English class. At Tony… Kenning's suggestion, the spelling was slightly modified in order to make the name seem less like that of a punk band and perhaps also as an indirect homage to Led Zeppelin.
A founder member of the group Sid Barrett came made up the name 'The Pink Floyd Sound' after two blues musicians called Pink Anderson and Floyd Council, this was later shorten…ed to 'The Pink Floyd' then to 'Pink Floyd'
They wanted people to hear of it or see it and not have any idea of what their music is like because, in any case their music is eccentric and different.

Prior to becoming a band, Benjamin Burnley performed as a solo act. Once, he knocked over and cracked a borrowed microphone. The owner of this microphone came onto the stage a…nd said "I'd like to thank Benjamin for breaking my f**king microphone." See 'related links' for more information.

In Linkin Park
The lead singer, Chester Bennington, named the band after a park near his house. The whole band was happy with the name and since then they've been Linkin Park. (The name is p…urposly misspelled, because another band already had dibs on the name, so they just changed the spelling.)
Andy personally gave me this answer two days ago when it was asked after a show. Andy attended a catholic school during his teen years, and his grandmother was very religious.… He is extremely close to her hence the rosary he wears. Anyway, in catholic religion, when a woman gives up all her pleasures in life to be a nun, she is known as a black veil bride. Meaning that she can no longer enjoy simple 'sinful' pleasures as she has given herself to God. He thought it would be a creative name for a rock/alternative band because the meaning of a black veil bride contradicts itself with the habits of a young rock/alternative band. =]
