Yeah, that doesn't really work for me too often. I usually think of the best ideas and solutions hours later when it's not even on my mind, then "Ding!"

Really funny when I run to my friends, arms flailing, explaining the idea.
They're usual response is "The hell does that have to do with anything right now?"

I usually go through the fluff and history, and find any obscure name, and either maul it, and just go for one that sounds similar.

Empire, Kislev, Breton, Dogs of War/Border Princes/Tileans etc all have their basis in the Germanic, Russian, French, Italian, languages, so can make them pretty easy.

Chaotic, can be scandinavian, but not always. Dwarves are much the same, but they're also rather easy - Harsh K's, G's, and short vowels, work well, similar to Chaos as well. Chaos Dwarves? GKGKGKGKGKGKGKoooooGKGKGKGKGKuuuGKGKGKeeGKGk could work pretty well for them.

Elves are hard;, flowy, floaty names, with developed vowels, and soft consonants, seem to work well. I find it's easier to trawl through History books (with hopefully the Malekith book, that I got the other day, this should help a wee bit), and the fluff books of Fantasy (I'd appreciate more on the Aenarion, actually) are godsends for names. Although Adam Troke/Temakador can fuck off, cocky little prick.

Err... Mind's gone blank. The rage has settled over that little bugger, and I've lost train of thought. I'll edit when I remember.

Alexander freidhart the grand master of the knights of moonlight


Warrior priest cato mador a tilean mercenary that joined the priesthood of sigmar

And the various wizards that always miscast and die fist turn

I cannot go into battle without a name for the general and co. Here's a few for different races (Lizardmen are the only ones I collect though):

LIZARDMEN (Go Aztec- 'X's, 'ui's and 'ch's)
Xlanpec (My Pit Fighter)
Huinichli (Slann)

Gorgrim Hide-Iron (Just a switch-around of a popular character)

TOMB KINGS: (Think Egyptian)
Zhulaha (TK)
etc. etc. etc.

SKAVEN: (Based on the Redwall novels vermin)

Anything French.

DWARFS: (Lots of accents)
Read The Hobbit or LotR for good names.

Will edit if I think of any more.

I'm gonna get to work on modelling a new Bruiser to lead my Ogres into battle... when done his name will be:
Choc Dearg (Red Hill)... pronounced k-no jair-ag

I'm afraid it just has to be gaelic to really give any Ogres the right sounding (and meaning) names.
