Dark Vengeance is a special kind of retarded when it comes to names, the Dark Angels especially. Used to be, you'd have overtly biblical names of angels and daemons like Azrael, Belial and so forth.

The new chaplain's name is Seraphicus. Sure, it's an order of Franciscan monks, but what are the odds that it was selected because it's a portmanteau of 'seraphim,' with a random 'icus' at the end to make it more gothic?

YES. At first I was disappointed seeing the OP, because the name in moon runes was clearly 'Death Metal'. Thanks for pointing that out. Now I can rest content that GW called something 'Death Metal'.

(get it)

>> No.20491640

Not the same person. I'm the first guy. The one who names them after Phil Kelly.
But I will tell thee the tale of Phil Kelly the Chaos Dreadnought. At my FLGS I would usually play a game with one of my friends who played the newest Space Wolves codex. So every time something unfortunate would happen I would blame Phil Kelly for writing at the time was a fairly powerful codex. Given I was playing with the latest CSM codex, not knowing what I was getting into, I would often field a little dreadnought I custom built with bit from various kits. Often I would curse Phil Kelly's name but it would usually be when my Dreadnought tarded out. These things would include, blowing away any nearby friendly infantry, blowing up various rhinos all with my Berzerkers in them, and then finally charging towards the nearest unit with the most Melta guns. ALL IN THE SAME GAME! One game the stupid thing literally killed half my army. He has killed more of my own units than the enemies. So my friends suggested I name him Phil Kelly. I still field him and sometimes multiple Dreads all named Phil Kelly. I never tire of his crazy antics and I love playing games with them as I find I have more fun with them killing whatever they please, as I play World Eaters this is fitting. Khorne does not care from whence the blood flows... only that it does. Phil Kelly understands this. And now sources claim the great one is writing the new CSM codex. It can only be fate.

Refusing to give in to the bloodthirst that possessed his fellow Battle-Brothers following the cleansing of Umidia, Sevarion was imprisoned by his brother and driven mad during his confinement by the thousands of voices in his head, before finally being imprisoned within the metal sarcophagus of a Helbrute, a creature consumed by rage.

>The Crimson Slaughter
>Formerly the Space Marine Chapter known as the Crimson Sabres, the Crimson Slaughter were declared renegade in M41 following signs of psychological instability and over-zealous prosecution of their campaigns. Their descent towards excommunication began on the planet of Umidia, where they purged the planet’s entire population, believed tainted by the worship of the Dark Gods.

>Subsequent interrogation of captured Crimson Sabres revealed that the cults of Umidia were in the process of summoning a Daemon of Khorne, and in revenge (or possibly reward) for the bloody annihilation of his followers, Khorne cursed the Crimson Sabres to be haunted by the voices of all those they killed. Subsequent bloodshed could silence the voices, but only for a short time, so Chapter Master Sevastus led his followers into the Eye of Terror so they could slaughter traitors to gain a temporary peace rather than spill the blood of innocents.

>Exiled in the Eye of Terror they were blessed with many gifts to further their combat prowess. Sevastus – now Kranon the Relentless – learned of the Hellfire Stone, an altar that could forever free his Chapter from its curse and silence the voices in his head once and for all.

>Joining forces with more powerful Traitor Legions during a Black Crusade, Kranon and the Crimson Slaughter began their rampage across a dozen or more worlds in the southern rim in search for the Hellfire Stone.

>> No.20493709

>Kranon the Relentless
>Sevastus Kranon was once Chapter Master of the Crimson Sabres Space Marines. Under this command his Chapter won great accolades, crushing worlds in the name of the Emperor. His brutal manner, however, earned the Chapter a darker reputation too. Now reborn as Kranon the Relentless of the Crimson Slaughter, he is driven to bloodier, darker acts in an effort to silence the voices crying out in his mind. On Bane’s Landing he seeks to banish the voices of his victims forever.

>> No.20493713

>Cultist Champions Anarkus and Tetchvar
>Anarkus always felt he was destined for something great. When he slew the staff, students and teachers from the orphanage that raised him, the Cult of the Red Haze quickly found a use for his talents.

>Once a Commissar stationed with the newly raised Procel regiment, in desperation and madness Tetchvar threw open the gates to the fortress, inviting the attackers in. He was spared, but his stormcoat was permanently stitched to his flesh as a reminder of his treachery.

>> No.20493718

>Draznicht’s Ravagers
>The brutal slayer known as Draznicht was once reckoned the wisest mind of all the Crimson Sabres. In recognition of his preternatural perception, when the Chapter descended to Chaos, his mind was opened to the Warp and a baleful third eye opened upon his forehead, ever seeking new ways to unleash murder. Now Draznicht follows Kranon, not as counsellor, but as his bloody right hand, ready to unleash the murderous Ravagers on any who stand in the path of the Crimson Slaughter.

So yeah.

>> No.20493964

In most cases they probably change their names upon joining chaos. You don't want to be known as Scottie the Slaughterer, you want a cool name like Korgoth the Skull Taker.

>> No.20493990

Have you looked at the names the very Heroes of the Imperium of Mankind possess?
I don't think they change their names all that much, buddy, since the theme they're going for there is their reality.
Which means that they would much rather changed it to the aforementioned Scottie.

Here are a few planetary governors I just copy and pasted.
>Gerontius Helmawr of Necromunda
>Herman von Strab
>Lufgt Huron, former "Tyrant of Badab"
>Marius Hax, Sector Governor of Calixis and Planetary Governor of Scintilla
>Xian Torus of "the World that died in One Night"
>Mykola Shonai, of Pavonis5
>Lukas Alexander of Kronus.

While these might not be all that beep-boop, I believe that my point still stands.

>> No.20494203

None of those names are anything except esoteric, a little odd by our standards, which they should be. Would you enjoy Gaunt's Ghosts as much if it was called Phil's Ghosts? Or how about Chapter Master David of the Ultramarines, or instead of Ursakar Creed you have Charles White. The esoteric names exist for a reason, it helps to illustrate how different the Imperium is than the modern earth. Besides it has been 38,000 years since the present, of course names change a little.

Oops, missed that consonant. Anyway, "thrashing", unless referring to the carding of wool, doesn't translate to Latin. A beating is "verbera" and a flogging is "verberantia". So maybe prope sinus metalicus verberantis? "Bay vicinity flogging metal."

Mc is more often an irish prefix. you're thinking of Mac. Although some clans on the western shore of Scotland use Mc, thanks to lots of cultural cross-sharing with them and Ireland.

>> No.20496594

1) Metalicus isn't a word, it'd be "Metallum". If you're trying to keep it all being masculine, you can bastardize that into "Metallus".
2) You probably shouldn't use a preposition in a name. It doesn't directly translate into "bay area" or "near the bay", but I'd recommend "Litus", which covers all sorts of shore-like areas.
3) There is no real word for trashing. To beat is "Verbero", so I'd use the participle "Verberatus."

Litus Metellus Verberatus
