Default my own chapter-help

Hello, for quite some time now i have been working on a chapter. I've come up with the basic colour scheme for the army, but now I was working up fluff and all that and finually realised I haven't thought of a name for the chapter. I've been thinking for a few days now but can't think of anything good, so was wondering if you guys could help me.
Below are 2 pictures, one of the basic colour scheme, and one of the chapter symbol.



Thanks.

Sadly, I have no fluff at the moment, tho I have thought that their weaponry would be mainly flamers and meltaguns, more close ranged weapons, and the main thought was a close combat army generally, tho in my plans it's forming out to be quiet different than how other chapters specialize in stuff, and organize their chapter, but that's for a different topic. All the names I've tryed using before I thought weren't good, well they didn't appeal to me. Some of the people I game with call them the "fusion marines" (because of the whole blue and orange thing) but I don't know. I guess something along the lines of fusion could work.

Actually, neither of those. It's a flame like kinda thing. I used my webcam to take the pictures, so sorry about the bad quality.

Use the name fusion,but it doesn't seem to go with many things.Sounds cool.
Fusion flames,Fusion Marines?Kind of hard to think of.Start toying with names,write them down and post them here and we can toy with them.
The flamers.The flamer marines lol :P

The Burning Fists...I like it. Let's see if we can't work around that.

So for the first word we want something relating to fire and light, and for the second name we want something powerful, something with a bit of punch to it (no pun intended).

First name:
  • Forge
  • Fire
  • Pyro
  • Flame
  • Scorching
  • Flaming
  • Burning
  • Searing

Second name (needs to be plural):
  • Hammers
  • Fists
  • Claws
  • Talons
  • Bolts
  • Sheep - Sorry...the idea of calling your Marines the 'Flaming Sheep' is just too powerful for me.
  • Spears
  • Blades
  • Knights

So out of those parts we can pull out the following half-decent names:
  • Forge Hammers
  • Fire Hammers
  • Fire Fists
  • Fire Claws
  • Fire Bolts
  • Fire Blades
  • Fire Knights
  • Flame Blades
  • Burning Claws
  • Burning Spears
  • Searing Spears

If there's nothing there you like then you can always employ the same technique and just change the variables to colours and animals or something (eg. Crimson Snakes).

Actually, I like a few of them:
Burning claws sounds good, i could even include lightning claws in the army for this one, then could do some cool conversions or paint jobs for the "burning" part.
Flaming sheep 8)
Fire knights could work.

I was also thinking of using "fusion" as the first word, so could use things like:
Fusion fists (Fists of Fusion)
Fusion knights (knights of fusion)
Fusion claws (claws of fusion)

Anouther friend that I game with suggested "Fusion Falcons" or "Falcons of Fusion", I like it but it won't fit with my plans so far.
Soo, maybe what one do you guys think sound catchy or good from the ones mentioned in this post, if any.
