The 10% that don't end in 'S' are bastardised versions of the names of old orthodox angels like 'Azrael' taken from Azarael the angel of death. I'm guessing that this is because Space Marines are frequently refered to as 'angels', but let's face it, whatever name you choose is fine, esp. if you have supporting fluff.
