Default Quick Terminology Question...

I've done several searches (both here and elsewhere), and am finding conflicting answers to the following question:

What are the CIB and the AFP "nicknames" in common useage, or have they/we actually come up with names that have stuck yet? For example, a Fusion Blaster is "Forge/Surge", a Plasma Rifle is "Knife/Blade", etc.

As far as I know there are none yet. Probably because the CIB and AFP are special issue and cant be mass used in an army anyway the combinations they are used with are many, many, many and everyone has a different use for them it would seem.

The only one I've heard is Aurora for Plasma Rifle and Cyclic Ion Blaster.
[center]Till shade is gone,
Till water is gone,
Into the Shadow with teeth bared,
Screaming defiance with the last breath,
To spit in Sightblinder's eye on the Last Day.

Learn to shorten your reach! If your foe can come close enough to negate your striking power, all stratagem is lost, and when all stratagem is lost, the battle is lost.

Tell me now, is there a man among you here, is there no one who will stand up and try to fight? Tell me man, is there not one in all your ranks, is there no one who values courage over life?

There's also the "Dakka" config which is CIB + Burst Cannon
