A very good way to approach naming is by use of a prefix and suffix.

This method does create cartoon style names though.

Prefix

Dark
Blooded
Blood
Righteous
Bloody
War
Hawk
Burning
Hateful
Doom
Flesh

Suffix

Hand
Brothers
Eyes
Stealers
Brethren
Fang
Talons
Stalkers
Rampagers
Avengers
Tormentors
Wardens
Anarchy
Emissaries
Descendants
Champions
Vengeance
Knights
Punishers
Angels
Heralds
Fists
Sun
Destroyers
Idols


There are programs around that can handle this kind of thing for you but to sum it up - as i'm sure you vets know...

1.) Get a dictionary, thesaurus or anything else to draw names from
2.) Compile a huge list of prefixes and suffixes.
3.) Add two of them together. A prefix with a suffix.
4.) Say it out loud.
5.) If it sounds cool jot it down and go again.

Add some more prefix and suffixes below. Lets get a nice big list going.

The names I like are

Exalted
Infernal Blades
Astral Talons
Sons of Spite
Sons of Desolation

Especially the Tear of Horus or Tears of Horus

or even The Tears of Treason
