Is there any background story or fluff as to how the chapters came up with their names?

Yes? You're going to have to be more specific. It varies by chapter. But at the very least every single first founding legion has some explanation, and many of their second founding chapters as well have been explained. Those that haven't been explicitly given some narrative reason assuredly have one.

From reading one of the Imperial Armour books and different background sources, normally the Captain chosen from a Chapter, who becomes the Chapter Master of the newly founded Chapter, chooses the name. Also, theres a list of names that cannot be used or certain words. So, lets say theres an early traitor chapter who get completely wiped out and have their name stricken from all records. Their name would not be allowed.
