    I've been wrenching my brain for the last few weeks for a sufficiently badass name for my Hive Fleet , but all I've come up with are horrible cliche names...

    I would be very appreciative of any help you can give

    hey Aramil_silverwind try something with the old latin feeling to it like some of these: Saguisacerbus, Fulgereardor or Celerculeus. Or you can use a name which means big size, fast moving or something like that.

    Hive Fleet Cthulu

    All credit to H.P. Lovecraft et al.

    Suggests to me an ancient, huge and powerful force with a hint more esotericism than the previous Norse and Hebrew and opiate addicted British mythos for large beasties. The esoteric slant could be a hint that the Tyrannids have evolved to compensate for the mysticism of the psyche that they encountered in their previous jaunts into this galaxy...

    Let me guess that was one of those horrible cliche names you came up with?

    Latin names are always cool.
    How about "Hostis invictus?" It should mean "invincible enemy."

    The grammar is likely to be wrong but it sounds cool.
    I've added a link to an online latin/english dictionary if you fancy making a latin name.

    That certainly is "fast and furious"! All the other Fleets are like Behemoth or Leviathin so how about Juggernaut.
    Henceforth no man shall set foot upon the world, and all around shall be set sentinals to ward away unwary spacecraft. We must accept that this place is lost to us forever, and is now the eternal habitation of abomination.

    Hive Fleet Ithaqua. That&#39;s one of the Cthulhu gods, the god of wind. Symbolizes fast-ness and fast changes of temperament. Or Hive Fleet Mordiggian- Cthulhu deity of the dead. H.P. Lovecraft had some pretty wacked out names:
    Nodens
    Azathoth
    Yog-Sothoth
    Shub-Niggurath
    Nyarlahotep
    Cthulhu
    Hastur
    Mordiggian
    Yig
    Shudde M&#39;ell
    Glaaki
    Dagon (I LOVE THAT NAME)
    Hydra (not completely original)
    Ithaqua
    Cthugha
    Tsathoggua
    Y&#39;Golonac
    PM me or post to ask what one of the names you think is cool symbolizes- I&#39;ll be glad to elaborate. And that was all from memory, too.
    Si em, tow en can de lach.
    Tak&#33; Tak&#33; Tak ah wan, Tak a lah&#33;
    Mi tow, can de lach.
    Mi him, en tow.

    How about Hive Fleet Emperors Anus? Bound to draw at least some flies.
