TRAJAN
IDAEUS
IXION
VALAUS
REECE
BRUEMOR

Yeah, so if you dont mind, can you help me out by giving me some grey knights last name that sounds "ordoly" or if you want, you can post yours or your friends last names.

Thanks a lot.

i personally would like to know how people choose the last name as the codex offers no explainatio of names and the examples are hard to understand (they look all biblical and far-out and then u get "Reece"???)

Nice names, very Greek and Roman sounding, pick up a latin dictionary and put together some names. That should give you enough for a whole chapter of em...WAAAGH!

hiya vycos! and thanks for the welcome, i am SOOO glad to have found this site, it is wonderful! lots of great tools and information and battle reports !! i run a game store here in Tennessee and now i have a great site to relate my customers to for killer tactical information and creative tips to make everyone's game experience more enjoyable. :D oh and i can post my battle reports for the Victorius ( well... not everyday ) Grey Knights! btw for anyone who is wondering, running a pure grey knight force is challenging, but very rewarding.and sometimes an undefeatable force. =)thats all for now. ---end transmission imperious ---

I personally like to think that the GKs are just modern versions of the Knights of old. Brought up from gifted families and pushed into a lifetime of training. I really like Greek names though.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Aphrodite
Ares
Artemis
Athene
Demeter
Erinyes
Eris
Eros
Moiras
Keras
Graces
Hades
Hephaistos
Hera
Herakles
Hermes
Hestia
Kronos
Odysseus
Pan
Persephone
Poseidon
Zeus

I know theres a few :blink: !
Hope these help!

Cheers,
Bob

I think of the names as callsigns more than anything with their real names lost along with their previous lives to have a complete fresh start at the beginning of their training.
