    Simple is the best.

    Who, Doors

    Even two word band names get shortened.

    Stones, Zeppelin....

    I don't know. Helium kinda reminds me of a 70's band like Air Supply. Something popish. Helios sounds better to me.

    Helium zeppelin. Way better than hydrogen zeppelins (too flammable) and led zeppelins (too heavy).
