Default Help me name my Sept!

I've been working on my fluff for quite a while now, and I've come up with a definitive version. The only question remaining is what the name should be.

The fluff: My Tau are from an ice planet, thrid out from the primary star of a binary system. The world is on the outer limit of the habitable band of space, and the tempature can even reach 5 degrees C. on a exceptionally warm summer day. The natives are well adapted for the weather, and have ongoing trade in art and other items with the Tau stationed there. The Tau are there because of several interesting mineral deposits on asteroids around the system, and becasue of the phamacutical properties of certain plants and animals that live in the volcainic hot springs scattered across the planet. The planet was colonized duirng the end of the second sphere expansion, and there is a deserted imperial outpost orbiting the scondary star. My cadre is the 12th [Sept], or "Ice Hunters"

The names:
1. Viss'el- Destroyed by orbital bombardment during the Damacles Gulf crusade.
2. Tran'ky'ky- Based on the book "Icerigger", the inspiration for most of the fluff.
3. Ho'th- guess where this one came from?
4. I'cept- pretty much "Ice sept" which explains the fluff quite handily.

Well, I will reply with the septs respectively.

1)Viss'el- is this the world which the Imperials bomb during the damocles crusade? Sounds ok

2)Tran'ky'ky - sounds lame. :P

3)ho'th- Star wars? Not original at all in terms of name.

4)I'cept- this one is a bad play on puns.

So my verdict? Go with Viss'el.

Except change it to Visse'l or something.

Rank names in places other than ranks are just bad, and make it look like you're not capable of creatively stringing letters together to make it sound Tau. Just moving the apostrophe solves that (instead of the root "viss" and the suffix "el," you have the root "visse" and the suffix "l" - different enough that people won't notice the "el" in there).

Generally I'd say choose what you think is the best. Don't let us vote on it!

But if you insist, go with Ho'th so you can dress all your battlesuits up as Wampas.

Viss'el. You can say it was recolonized.
Also, remember that the only "septs" are those already named. The rest are outposts or colonies.

I know that, but that leaves so little space to make new septs that you might as well not.

At the very least, Im pretty sure Viss'el was referenced as a colony in the old 'dex. And if it was purged then resettled, i doubt that has changed much.
