Names, titles and short phrases are not generally protected by copyright because they are not of sufficient substance to constitute a “work” for copyright purposes or they are commonplace.

However, names can be protected under other areas of the law. such as Trademark

AS far as I am concerned I think the Names, titles and short phrases are not generally protected by copyright because they do not comprises of sufficient substance to constitute a work for copyright purposes or they are commonplace. Copyright basically is a form of intellectual property law which protects original work of an individual which includes literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic work, such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software, and architecture. It definitely does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation, although it may protect the way these things are expressed.

You can copy right your band logo but copy right of band name is not possible. Band names are safe under the trademark law.
