Naming my Cosplay Group - Help!

Hey there!

So, recently, I suggested to some of my school friends- two boys, and three girls (including myself)- that we form a cosplay group, and they've all agreed to join, and are pretty keen on it.

But, there's just one problem.

They're all finding it difficult to agree on one of the names I generated from the anime/manga/geekery that we all like.

I was wondering if anyone might be able to either;

- Point me to a good name generator or such,


- Help me to generate a name using our interests shared as a group.

I kinda hoped it wouldn't come down to this, because I thought it would be cool as a group to come up with an awesome name we all agreed on. But, anyway...I honestly don't think we're gonna be capable of thinking up a name we all agree on.

Which is why I thought about asking some other people instead- with perhaps a little more experience than any of us newbies ;u;

So, what you should know about us...

- We're all very awkward British teens <3
- We love a mixture of J-rock, rock, metal, J-metal and dubstep,
- We like British YouTubers :3

We also share interests in...

- Gaming - The Legend of Zelda, Corpse Party,
- Manga & Anime - Attack on Titan,
- Comics / Visual Novels - The Walking Dead & Scott Pilgrim.
- General geekery - Marvel, Doctor Who, Dexter, aand Breaking Bad c:

Soo...uhm, hopefully that helps, a little ;u; I would be so happy if any of you could even come up with anything, if I'm honest.

I'll message them with any suggestions you might have!

Thank you in advance, for reading all of this ^w^

I can think of a couple, but they all seem pretty obvious to me so you've probably thought of them already.

I'd personally go with something that covers a wide range of geekery or is a combination of multiple fandoms. If you stick to a name pertaining to only one, it may make people think y'all only cosplay from one fandom.

Maybe something like the Anglo Geek Association, League of Nerds, Legend of Gamers, (Lol, that's a defunct game shop my boyfriend worked at) or combine your initials to make a word?
My username is an incredibly stupid pun that only I will get.

Currently working on:
Benny Gecko -- Fallout: New Vegas
Momoko Koigakubo -- Ghost Stories (Dub)
Mercenary!Brittnay -- MPGiS
Malory Archer -- Archer
Deandra -- MPGiS
Anna Cornonation Dress -- Frozen
Vader Eloha/The Queen -- OFF
Princess Suwa -- Mascot of the city of Suwa, Japan

Sometimes falling back on surrealism is the best option. Call yourselves...I don't know, CHOWDER or something. Make up a phrase it's an acronym for.
Workin' on:
Tom Petty [Final Fantasy XV] (9%)
Bondage Finch [Bondage Finch Adventures] (12%)
Melisandre, the Red Woman [Game of Thrones] (43%)

Band name generators..Google that and you can get them at random. I did that where I got 10 random names at a time..They were usually all complete crap, but you can use words from each and figure out a name that way..

Do any of your first names or cosplay names begin with a vowel? You could make an acronym from your names. I wouldn't mix first names with cosplay names unless their cosplay name IS their first name.
