Default Naming the new CSM codex

With the new Chaos Space Marines codex rumored to be coming soon, I've been wondering what they will call it. I know "Chaos Space Marines" is not copyrightable so I expect it will be getting a new "High Gothic" name.

Please post your predictions and have fun with it. Here are mine:

Khaos Astartes
Chaus Astartes
Adeptus Astartes Damnus
Legio Emortus: Astartes Damnus
Bloody blood of the blood blood

Whatever it is, it's sure to be rediculous. ;)

I don't understand, the Space Marine codex is still called "Space Marines". Why would it not be "Chaos Space Marines?"

Codex Adeptus Astartes: Wannabes

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Yes you're right, "Chaos Space Marines" will most likely still be in the title. I believe they will add something addional, to bring it in line with the "Adeptus Astartes" in "Codex Adeptus Astartes: Space Marines" and Codex Adeptus Astartes: Blood Angels"

My serious guess would be

Codex (butchered latin for lost and the damned, or maybe a reference to fallen legions as they still operate as the legions of old): Chaos Space Marines

This would make it easy to follow the pattern with Codex _____: Iron Warriors and the like.

It would be unrealistic for it to be something like

Codex Chaos Space Marines: Traitor Legions?

Surely The CSM name wouldnt have to relate to the high gothic loyal version because they no longer use that kind of language - who calls themselves the damned traitor legions? Unless all of the codex names are written from the point of view of the Imperium.

Do the Dark Eldar call themselves the Dark Eldar?

Do the Eldar call themselves Craftworld Eldar?

I'm pretty sure it's an arbitrary outsider point of view.

@Haskanael - Why would it be a dataslate? EVERY CSM legion was originally a traitor legion. It'd be a great way to differentiate if you wanted something a little bit more interesting than just 'Chaos Space Marines'.
