Rules for pop group names
Most 'original' spellings of pop-group names draw on a few possibilities of English spelling:
number and letter names Pollen 8, Eminem, 4-Hero, BoyZ II Men. Bad II the Bone
masculine/working class pronunciations "'in'' for 'ing': Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Stampin’ Ground, The Bruvvers;
conventional spoken form of 'and' as 'n' Guns ‘n’ Roses, Salt ‘N’ Pepa.
imitation rap accents Gravediggaz, Fun-Da-Mental, Muthafunk, Killa Instinct, Chilla
traditional misspellings of 'c/k, s/c., s/z' Kreed, A-Cyde, Redz, Reprazent.
puns on names or expressions particularly clone bands: No Way Sis, Foney M, Bhang II Rites, Mellon Collee, The Pharcyde, Propa-Ghandi, SoulJahz
Rarely do groups use spellings that go completely against English rules: Danii Minogue, The Grrls, the hKippers, Mu-Ziq. Only a few names are the same as accidental spelling mistakes: The Pheonix Band, Sqwint, Atmosfear, Led Zeppelin, The Rapsody Orchestra
