Though the guitar is assumed to have originated in Spain in the early 16th century, a lute-like instrument (similar to a guitar) has been found in ancient depictions dating back to 3500 to 3200 BCE.[1][2]

Today, guitars are one of the most popular instruments in the world. They’re a favorite among musicians of country, rock and roll, indie, folk, and many other musical genres.[3][4]

A couple of reasons why they’re so popular are that guitars are more affordable and portable than some other instruments, such as drum kits. They’re also great for songwriting and guitarists can easily play as a one-person band.[3]

Many legendary guitarists like Jimi Hendrix and B.B. King have given their guitars special names.[5] Whether you’re a beginner or you’ve been playing all your life, you may want to do the same.

Below, you’ll find the list of 70+ cool and punny, male and female guitar names. We’ve also provided a few tips on choosing the right guitar name for you!

How to Choose the Perfect Guitar Name

You might be struggling to narrow down your choices. You’ll want to find something that speaks to you and fits your guitar like a musician’s glove, after all.

Here are some ideas to help you find the name that’s right for you:

  • What’s your chosen music genre and style? Keeping your guitar name in line with these two things will help narrow down the possibilities. A folk singer with an acoustic guitar that’s been in the family for generations will probably be looking for something different than a rock-and-roller with a sleek electric instrument. Go with a name that fits your vibe.
  • Is there something unique about your guitar? If your guitar is scarred with memories or super high-tech, choose a name you can add an adjective to that describes your instrument perfectly, such as “The Cyber Chord Lord” or “Metal Mayhem.”
  • Choose your favorites and ask some friends. It might help to get the opinion of others. Make a list of your favorite names and go over them with a friend or family member who’s familiar with your music. Ask them which one they like best and why. Their answer may be just the inspiration you need!
