Because finding a name for your band is so difficult, people love hearing origin stories. Take Imagine Dragons, for example. Where did that come from? This is…tricky.
The name is allegedly an anagram, a couple of words scrambled to make sense from another couple of words. Okay, so what words were used to create the name “Imagine Dragons?”
The band will not say. The only clue they’ve ever dropped is that some apostrophes might be required, but then they walked back on that.
Fine. Be that way. Let’s go to the Internet.
Using an online anagram machine, we know there are about 107,000 different combinations for the letters in “Imagine Dragons.” Guesses include “Adoring Images,” “A Roaming Design,” and “God is in the Manager.”
- Adorning Images
- A Roaming Design
- God is in the Manager
- Diagnosing Mare
- Ordaining Games
- Mornings Aid Age
- Insomnia Dagger
- Groaning Medias
- Mansion Ride Gag
The band appreciates the efforts, but they’re still not saying.
