Henry's Dress. Judging from the last.fm recommendation, all signs point to me enjoying this band. I just will not listen to them because the name is stupid plus my ex is marrying some guy named Henry.

found this article about bad band names, some of them are really funny.

Bubble Puppy
True, it was a Huxley reference, but they were hitting the Top 40 in the Age of Bubblegum, so you can see where things were going to go south after the Summer of '69 with that very soft name (and of course, there possibly were not many who got the reference). Even if there was no legal BS going on in their history (In connection with their time on International Artists), I could still see them changing their name by the 70's (Which they did, to Demian upon signing to ABC).

All the Lonely People
This was a Late 60's band from Detroit who just did not make it. We get it, you love The Beatles, and that's cool, but your name is another matter. They never really went beyond Warm-Up Band Status.

Bob Seger and The Last Herd
The saddest thing is that the worst name for any of Seger's bands was the mark, of in my opinion, his best years. Hear "East Side Story" and of course the original version of "Heavy Music" (1967...not the Smoking OPs version). I can imagine where it can sound like "Last Turd" on some AM radio playing a station that's about to fade out. Thankfully the word "System" was on his mind by 1968.

Toto
A Dog from The Wizard of Oz...enough said!

The Up
Tried to follow up in the Detroit Political High Energy Music of the Late 60's, and almost had what it took (I understand the live shows were better their recordings), but were not as solid and rocking. The name The Up sounds like something a little more lightweight - kind of like all of the wimpy "Let the Sunshine In"/Age of Aquarius bands of the era - and nothing revolutionary.

Travis
Not one of my favorites.

Strawberry Alarm Clock
Talented musicians trying to hop on the Psychedelic Train. Not as clever as Chocolate Watch Band.

Giant Crab
Hippie era band. Sounds a little like Giant Crap.

And the following looking through some album cover books...
Peanut Butter Conspiracy
Earth Island
Rainbow Ffolly
Federal Duck
Whale Feathers
Clocks (No The... before it, just Clocks)
The Hawaiian Pups
Shy Talk (Mid 80's...bound for the Cut Out bins!)
The Rads (On EMI in the early 80's)
Furr

Two More from the 80's:
Fabulous Poodles (Mirror Stars? No better make that Cut Out Bin stars)

Sniff 'n' the Tears (Still, at least they had "Driver's Seat" as featured in Boogie Nights. At least they had a decent song...not great, mind, but something listenable.)

I agree a bit on No Use for a Name's music.

Dragonforce sounds quite a bit like a name for some cheesy 80's Fantasy flick.

I guess that's the point when your lyrics deal with fantasy themes...

Your Band Name Sucks: 50 of the Inexcusably Worst.
The name 'Test Icicles' is pure genius, and the article about them is even better. Although I don't think some of the bands listed in the top 50 were that bad. Keane, Green Day, Mr. Mister, From Autumn to Ashes, Staind, Korn, all seem fine.
