Default help with a name (now with working pics)

i can't think up a name for my new SM chapter here some info on it

Traits: no mercy no respite, take the fight to them and flesh over steel
Gene-seed: imperial fists
Home world: Oechalia (in the gothic sector)
Chapter symbol: the fleur de lys
Conversions: all the models in the army converted with Bretonnian knight head crests but still keeping the SM heads, lances, shields and some black Templar bits
Colour scheme: dull silver armour. bronze head crest, dark green shoulder pads and shields
Fluff: it is a non-codex chapter made up of several different houses each made up of 200 men and having there own traditions and relics. they only recruit form there own home world and only sons of noble families or sometimes very talented individuals may join. others who wish to fight have to join the peasent Militia formed in times of war that often follow the chapter in to battel and is also the 1st line of deffence if the planet comes under attack.

so can u help me by thinking up a name for this chapter im looking for some quite knightly and noble and also some help on the fluff because i think it's missing something ???.
thanks

Knights Benedictus springs to mind.

Alternatively, we have a list of 1,000 Chapters in a sticky... odds are you can pick a name, and use it without trouble.

Definitley something with knights in it!

I don't know why but Knights Solar springs to mind.

I think it sounds cool, and works ok since the Imperial Fists were originally based on Terra (though they are now a fleet based chapter with no fixed adress).

How about...

Knights Breton.

Templars de lis.

Ordeaux l'Imperialle

A quiet and none-to-subtle homage to the Knights in Tights.

Hmmm...combinging the fleur de lis of the nuns with guns and the source of their gene-seed...I get:


[size=30pt]SISTER FISTER[/size]


...back to the drawing board, I assume?


(sank you, I be here all ze veek!...and if that's not a karmariffic bit of humor, I don't know what is...I just can't decide whether I deserve good or bad karma for that one, LOL)

i should of seen that one coming!! i'll give u 10/10 for humor but i don't think i'll use it.
i'm using the fleur de lis as it on a lot of Bretonnian models and its an old knight sign
i do like the brothers of steel tom norman but i'm would like to have some more ideas to think about keep up the good work
