Any cool sounding name will do. Good source materials are in movies, comics, holy scriptures and most literature (yepp, most literature!)
Try to make it have authority. For instance: The name Jaz has a nice ring to it, but it carries no real authority does it? But Jazandro! Now thats another story. And even better: Jazandro Keeper of the Burning Seal. You see? Now you have a name with authority PLUS something that makes people go "Huh? whats this burning seal?" and thus you introduce your characters fluff.

When i make names i just string letters, wordsor basically anything together. Most if its crap but some of it is gold! Like this Jazandro, im gonna keep that. :lol:

Aye.
"Who calls himself emperor? You gotta be a real ass for that. Heck my name is Abaddon, that means Devil. Now there's a manly name!"
Hmm maybe that's what Horus used to say too.

;) I Collect Word Bearers, and i thought this may help. Here are the names of some of my Independant Characters:

Daemon Prince - Tichondrius - Tiy-kon-dree-us

Sorcerer - Aramachus - A-ram-ak-us

Aspiring Champion - Leth I'Chamon - leth-I-Ka-mon
/\
This name i made up from The Hordes of Chaos Armied Book. Look near the back under 'The Dark Tounge' (The language of Chaos). Translated, it reads 'The Lord of The Sands' (My Gaming Board is a desert theme)

If your really stuck, Try Looking into Mythology, or even Fantasy Computer Games.
Aramachus and Tichondrius are both of a game called 'Warcraft III'. Even Better, Try Dictionarys for different languages. Latin is always good for the Imperium, Norse for Nurgle and Egyptian for thousand sons or Tzeentch.
Give it a go, and tell me what you Think.

I used to play word boyz and had an interesting storyline which could be of use. You know how nurgle was a real god? He was the ancient sumerian god of plague. Its true. so, going with that logic, i chose to name my word bearers the keepers of the flame. They wworshipped in addition to the four gods another god from ancient times which was reawakening, Ishtar. God of fertility, god of pleasure, but most importantly, god of war. My commanders name was and still is Antimachos. old style greek sun god. try reading all thos old books on greek mythology great stuff in there. got my from a book called horses of heaven.

Nice. I don't know where my commander's name (and my forum name) came from. Antioch I first heard on Star Wars Ep 2, at the very beginning, when Mace Windu was saying that Obi-wan and Anakin were returning from a border dispute on Antioch. I liked the sound of the word, and took it for a name. I also like my Chosen Champion's name, Kor'ic Therion. I got Kor'ic from my friend, who chose that as a name for a WWF No Mercy character (N64 rawks) and I got Therion from Aleister Crowley, who went by the nickname Master Therion. All in all, you just have to look at very unorthodox sources for some bitchin' names.
