Default Fluff question - Names

I need your help guys and gals.

I've been going through my Tau army giving the commanders/ squad leaders names, I've done all the Tau side of things (Fire Warriors, battlesuits, etc). So far I've not been able to find anything on naming systems for Kroot and Vespid. Is there any resource on the net that I can read? I've gone through the lexicon here but didn't find anything.

Any help you can provide would be most appreciated.

right, I can help you here, considering I was going through the same dilemma when i first started
two choices
1) you have the name in the Tau language, in which case follow this link:

2)you make up a name (either using help from that link or just what sounds cool )
eg. Sword-wind

The tau codex gives you an idea of how tau names are made up of (not sure which page though)

In an Tau name there is always:
There rank (e.g. Shas'la)
there sept (e.g. Tau'n)
something else...
and personaly names (e.g. kais=skilful)

But not in that order (at least i don't think so) but rank always comes first.
