Naming a music playlist is an art in itself.

Sometimes you need to think out of the box to make your music collection look appealing. That is where this bunch of cute playlist names will come in handy.

Use the mood of your selected music or get quirky like those official playlists on Spotify. Maybe even go retro to get your listeners to click on your playlist.

Naming your playlist is important because it summarises the vibe of the music within. You could make a playlist of music to cheer you up when sad, or really energise you when you're happy.

Sometimes editing a collection on Spotify can be difficult. There's no need to fret because here's some quick help.

Simply go the 'Playlists', click on 'Create Playlist' and start adding details. For editing, just click on the 'three dots', click on 'Edit details', and make the desired changes. There's no rule saying how long your playlist should be, but 30-40 tracks is a decent length to aim for.

Here are some Spotify playlist names for all types of music, including sub-genres and indie forms. Why not also check out Names From Songs and Punk Names?
