Default Eldar / dark Eldar Words

Okay, I'm re-creating an Inquisitor charachter and part of His/her history is that s/he cannot reveal his/her real name, and Iv'e decided that its alias would have been given instead. And whats cooler than the eldar??

So basically what words from the eldar languages would suit a futuristic ninja??

Very nice.

Thanks you very much.

EDIT: Iarstillar - female sword. Sounds too good to be true.

Despite Eldar being my one and true army I have a love hate relationship with it.


I hate the high fantasy names with too many I's, A's, L's, R's and N's....

I'm also extremely saddened by the voice acting in DoW. (though the farseer was suitably lethal : kill them all!)

And the good-evil dichotomy and archetypes that sees people unable to see Eldar beyond noble High Elves in Space.


And also I'm saddened by the fact that I've digressed a lot from the original topic.

But yeah, my point is, always keep open the option of using Achaean (ie. Greek, Macedonian) names. Because the Eldar Culture is extremely similar to ancient Greek culture.

I take it you don't like my choice of name then?

No, but that shouldn't matter, cos u do and really, i'm not playing your army am I?

But what my point was, if any eldar players are tired of the High Fantasy names, that is a viable alternative, to use Achaean names instead.
