Hi guys, I'm dabbling in orks, and I'm trying to find a good name for my warboss. I thought of the song "Boy named Sue" by Johnny Cash, and thought that might fit with what I know of Orks (the biggest, meanest ones wind up in charge). So I need some help trying to incorporate Sue into his name. I'll add ideas as I have them, but right now, I've hit a wall creatively.
Perhaps a grizzly chain of surnames ended with "Sue"? That would be pretty hilarious, actually. You could even incorporate that song's story into the fluff behind the boss, like how he used to get the snot kicked out of him, but by some chain of events he ended up becoming a brutally powerful warboss, where even boys far out of earshot would think twice of snickering about his sissy name.

I actually like your idea so much that I think you should just stick with a plain "Whaaghboss Sue" and develop a cool background story around him.

Thanks guys, yeah I think I'll just stick with Sue for his name, and write up some fluff. This is going to be a ton of fun doing the WIP thread for this army.
