Band Name Origins:

  • That stuff about Christianity is nonsense, in fact they liked the definition of 'pixie' in the dictionary, something like 'mischievous little elf'. Submitted by: Chris Scott
  • [from Alec Eiffel Pixies Bio] "It was Joey Santiago who thought up the name The Pixies, although he apparently didn't even know what the word meant at that time. "With English not his first language," Charles explained, "Joey has a fascination for new words. 'Oh I like that word,' he says, and looks it up and sees what it means. Believe it or not, he wanted to call the band Pixies In Panoply, but we shortened it a little." Submitted by: Fu Manchu

Stupid Band Names:

  • There were two bands called the Pixies, an obscure 1960's girl group and a 1980's and later alternative band. (The alternative band is the more well known of the two, however.) Submitted by: Robert Jon Brown
  • Sounds like a name for a girl-pop group, but this is really an Indie Rock act, best known for "Here Comes Your Man". Submitted by: GlamRockNinjaLord
