Default Rename my Chapter- do it now!

Right I've been discouraged by the fact that GW might be adding any fluff to the Iron Champions (a Chapter I wanted to create from the ground up essentially) so I've decided to go completely off the reservation and alter my current fluff to suit a DIY Chapter- ably constructed using Deathwatch: Rites of Battle- but I'm stuck on a name (and a definite colour scheme to be honest, but that's for another time).

I've winnowed it down using the random name generator from the Rites of Battle book to-

Adjectives: Black, Doom, Celestial, Iron, Guardian
AND
Nouns: Consuls, Dragons, Talons, Sentinels, Destroyers

Note: It a multiple choice poll so choose 2 names if you can
Just pick an Adjective and a Noun from the Poll (but only 1 of each) unless you really like a certain Noun+Noun or Adj.+Adj. combo!
I purposely haven't put up the various combinations because A) there's too many, and B) maybe you'll envisage a combo you like that I missed.
Adjective then Noun or vice versa is up to you, if you want to post telling me what name you picked that's awesome, otherwise I'll guess

Bit of info- the Chapter will be a Codex one but with a slight specialization in terror tactics, has been created as a Standing Force to guard a certain section of the Galaxy (segmentum undetermined at this point) and has taken an uninhabited world as it's fortress location.

I like names like The Heralds of Damocles, just flick though your classical literature and find inspiration.

Thanks for the ideas...

The black doom. It's a bit dramatic, but has a nice twang to it.

The black dooooooom!

Iron Sentinels. I like Iron... plus I haven't see many Chapters with the name Sentinel.

I'd go for either Iron Talons or Talons of Iron. Iron talons sounds a little more natural to me though.
