Default Army Names

My local shop has recently asked all of its players to come up with a names for their army(ies). The owners are ordering us name plates to put on a challenge roster for competitions. I was wondering if your shops do the same thing or if you just name your army(ies) anyway. I named my Necron army C'tanic Verses, in reference to The Satanic Bible by Anton LaVey.

What are your armies named?


Necrons: C'tanic Verses
tie-RAN-ids: no name yet
Chaos Space Marines: no name yet

My Tau are called "Cadre Nightstalker", though the name has really no meaning. They are neither very good at nightfights, nor do they wear night camo.
My Commander just likes the ring of the name...

Well, I name my armies out of the fun of it.

Tau: Baro Hunter Cadre
Sisters Of Battle: The Order of the Dreaming Hearts
Death Guard: Baldr Force.

The Baro Hunter Cadre got its name out from the anime Neo-ranga, while the Baldr Force is in reference to the Norse God Baldur. As for the Order of the Dreaming Hearts, I don't recall how I came up with it.

I belive my Tau are of the Kai'nan Cadre, which should translate to "greatsword" if I remember right. It sounded cool and seemed fluffy enough, with characters like "Brightsword" and "Longknife" running around.

I haven't named my Necron army because it just doesn't seem needed considering, but my Ork army is named Sun'z Killaz simply because they kill everything under the sun.
