Default Good Orkish Names.

Okay So I just had this awesome Idea to call a Bad Moon Gretchin 'Gilbo Gubbins'.

+1 to anyone who can pick it.

What awesomely fun names have you come up with for your orks and their clanz?

Heres some I like.
Karboom Monorkside Klan - speed freaks
Kawasorki Killaz - Biker Klan
Boyz 're Back in Brown - Snakebites

Haha, Bilbo Baggins....

My brother has called his own clan the 'Ead Krumpaz. Not sure if that already existed though, it does sound a little bit familiar.

I've always just referred to my Orks by the title of WAAAGH! Gorskull, Gorskull being the name of my warboss.

My formula for Orky names has been to take one of the Orky glyphs from the codex (don't have it on me so I can't cite the page) for one syllable and a suitable word of choice for the other.


Big Mek Grimscrew: "grim" is Ork for dangerous, screw for generic Mek term. Doubly appropriate since his Shokk Attack Gun either screws up my opponents or screws me up.

Big Mek Wazzajunk: "wazza" is Ork for speed, junk for what he makes the trukks out of.

Weirdboy Wurrspark: "wurr" is Ork for weird, spark for his habit of rolling Zzap! and Frazzle when I really need them.

I have WAAAGH!!! Nazrukk containing Stompa's Skrapaz
I used the glyphs for my warboss and my meks personality for my big mek.
"LIMEY MAN TO THE RESCUE!!!! I've come to kick arse and drink tea...and I'm all out of tea"

Please correct me with my spelling! (I know it's terrible)

For individual Ork names

For warband names, just have the warbosses name followed by another word e.g. Cammerz' Dakkalads or Cammerz' Ard Lads ect.
