Default Tau hunter cadre name

How would the Tau go about naming the Cadre's? I've named my Shas 'O but I still need a name for my Hunter cadre. Looking for ideas here

Hmmmm...I question that. How would the "Higher ups" be able to tell which Cadre is which and where they're deployed? Even if its just a numerial designation, I'd think that there would be some way to tell. I've chosen the Sa Cea sept. My Commanders name is Shas'O Sun Tzu, so how would I describe his Hunter cadre?

In this case, I'd go with something like Sun Tzu's home province, and then split the name up.

In my last campaign, I was using a Battle, not a cadre, and called it Gethsemane, but then split that word up to this: Battle Sa'cea Geth'se'mane. For battles, I use a name that's iconic, but for cadres, I use somthing more concrete, like what Tau_va was suggesting.

I find it very difficult to name Tau cadres and commanders, but am trying to keep up my own lexicon. If I can dig it out, I'll suggest a few new words to the lexicon on the site.

Many thanks for the insight Zakalwe. Something about not having an army name just irks me. Like the New Big Black Book says, how would you like it if the army you were assigned to did'nt have a name or a name for its commander? For me, I just like these little personal touches that give just a little bit more to the hobby. Think I'll break out The Art of War and see if the real Sun Tzus province is listed. Would sure be fun to have a "Correct" army name.

Just googled it, and it's Shantung. Hope that's helpful. ;D

I named my cadre Or'es Shi. No need to be of a province and have a uniform name.

Ok, so let me give this a try...
Comander Shas'o Sa Cea Sun'Tzu of the Shan'tung Cadre.

Gaah..naming was so much easier as an ork...What did the boss do? "Wot?! 'E krumps stuff, I'z name is 'ead Krumpa of da Evil Sunz tribe wot calls itself da Rollin' Thunda' boyz cauz dats wot dey doez"

But hey, this greater good stuff has me hooked...
