View Full Version : Name my Chaplain

11-09-2005, 18:50
While I am not sure if this is the right spot to put this, I was looking for some help in naming my chaplain for my Sons of Guilliman army. This section will gradually become more on topic after I get suggestions for names and chose one because then I will begin to write the background for him and show how he has progressed into the rank that he is and how he has come to lead the Sons of Guilliman to battle.

Any help would be appreciated.

What are your other characters named? If they're not, I advice you to use Latin names. There are tons of them, and High Gothic is a kind of Latin anyway. As the Sons of Guilliman are Ultras successors (no kiddin'?), and Ultras have Latin names, go for Latin! I'll suggest the following: Gaius, Ferox, Bestius, Ragus, Helius and so on and so forth.

Allways liked the name Inderon, myself. Also Gaius, Taretna, Malveticus, Jericho...

A friend of mine recently built a Space Marine Chapter, and we spent a good long time trawling Greek stories and myths for good names. Strangely enough, our favourite name came not from any story I've heard of, but from a dictionary of all things (well the Thesaurus section)! The name was given to a Grey Knight Grand Master and his retinue...

Now all fear the divine wrath of Supreme Lord Exorbitant and his Retinue of the Just and Supererogatory!

Roughly translated it means Supreme Lord Over The Top And His Retinue of The Just And Totally Unnecessary.

The name just seemed to come together and we fell about laughing (for way too long really). It sounds almost serious until you look up what it means. It seemed to suit a tooled-up Grey Knight lord and his squad.

Anyway, my point is that you don't have to adopt all of your names from myths and so on - be creative one in a while for some variety.

Nah, not for a long time now. I'm sure there's a Chaplain Charlie running around somewhere too....

What about Dimitrius? Or Cornelius Agripa Skipio Africanus. Two of the best siege specialists in the Romean Empire.
