As much as I love music, I have absolutely no idea what would make a good band name! I’ve never been able to play any instruments or even read music, so being in a band myself was never a dream of mine. When I first started learning music on fourth grade, I had to get my best friend, who had taken piano lessons for years, to write what letter each note was in my book so I could play along. It was also a bit of a struggle to even get him to agree to do this because we were both rule followers and hated the idea of writing in a school book, but I also wanted to be able to keep up. I can identify notes if I’m just reading them on a page, but not while trying to play the at the same time. I ended up getting through recorder by memorizing the order of the notes in the songs.
Years later, when it was time to choose an instrument for the last couple of years of elementary school, I picked the flute because I assumed it would be easy. It really wasn’t! As much as I’d love to be able to play an instrument, I’ve never truly been invested enough to putting in the work to actually practice or learn one. I haven’t really been in a position to imagine what to name a band, so instead I had to search through my Goodreads list and find book titles that jumped out at me as something that sounds like it could be a band. It definitely seems like fantasy books make some of the best names!
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Wilder Girls would be such a great rock band name for an all-female group.
