Don't Give Me Names is the second album by the German band Guano Apes, released in 2000. It includes the singles "Big in Japan" (a cover of the Alphaville song), "No Speech", "Living in a Lie" and "Dödel Up".

The single Don't You Turn Your Back on Me was originally going to feature on the album, but due to a low chart rating and overall fan feedback it was decided to be left out.

The album was certified gold in Germany[2] and in Switzerland.[3]
