Default Raven Guard Successor Chapter

i want to start a raven guard successor chapter [don't like raven guard traits] but i can't think of a name for them.

the traits i will be using are:

Blessed be the warriors
No mercy, no respite
Eye to Eye

basicly a raven guard army with no bikes and lots of drop pods and assault marines.

can you help think of a name?

Well it's got a certain 'Death from above theme' so perhaps something along those lines?

Thunderbolts?
Griffons?
Fire Eagles?
Imperial Hammers?
Flashbolts?
Scarlet Ravens?
Blazing Seraphim? - I love the name 'Seraph' for Marine stuff...it's just so appropriate.
War Hawks?
Burning Spears?
Pearl Dragons?


What is their colour scheme? How do they fight? What's they're background? What are their values and motivations? Is there anything symbolic to them? These are things you could think about and try to incorporate into their name.

Well I'm rather fond of 'Scarlet Ravens' and 'War Hawks'...but obviously I'm biased. Didn't you like any of the rest of my suggestions? 'Flashbolts' was one of my favourites.

No? :'(

Yep! I like War Hawks too. There's plenty of eagle bits out there on Marine sprues, you could easily play on the iconic image of a Hawk.
