    Alot of the space marine/imperial names are based off of latin. Therefore I would suggest you buy a latin dictionary or find one online. Then you can choose english words that apply to your characters and use the latin word for them as a name.

    I don't know if you can still find it, or if you want to spend the money, but Troll Lord Games (I think) has a book called "Gary Gygax's Extraordinary Book of Names." You'll never want for name ideas again - at least, name ideas based on real life languages. It even has stuff from dead languages.

    Here's a link to a site that features a lot of the GW names that have appeared over the years. It's not to up to date and doesn't include those featured in the Horus Heresy novels but there are still a lot to choose from.

    I've been working on updating the list myself to include those from the books, which I could send out if people are interested?
    What you leave behind is not what is written on your tombstone but what is written in the heart of others.
