Ok so I have started a salamanders space marine army and the only names I have found to be associated with said chapter are Vulkan and Xavier.

Anyone identify the style or origin of these names so i can find more that fit the theme?

For example Ultramarines having roman names, Dark angels having Biblical names, Salamanders having ................ names?

Vulcanus is a roman god of smithing and handicraft ...
Xavier doesn´t have a connection I´m aware of.

I imagine Salamanders having the roughly same pool of names as the Blood Angels: roman or italian first names. It just sounds right ...
Or to put it another way: you´re absolutely not restricted on which names to choose.

Hephaestus is another good name. It was the name of the greek equivalent of Vulcan.

Other than that, just go with traditional latin names: Quintius, Aurelius, Gaius, etc.

Thats what I was thinking too. Just finished reading the Emporer trilogy by Conn Iggulden. So my head is full of Roman names.
