A Collection of Names for Death Guard Characters and Squads

There is plenty of latin in Warhammer 40,000, ranging from people's names and place names, to battle company mottos and the Emperor's orders.

This page presents an incomplete collection of latin, latin-like, and other names (with their approximate English meanings) that are suitible for Death Guard and plague marine characters. I might expand this concept to other armies at a later date, but for now, this'll serve as a repository and resource for naming my Death Guard characters and squads. If there's anyone out there who has a better grasp of latin than me, then let me know if there's any bloopers or obvious omissions! Further suggestions would also be very welcomed!

Thanks for doing the latin homework. I think I may have to borrow a few of those tasty words.

Hi Drax - thanks for the additional names! :)

Hi Matt - please, by all means borrow them. The point is to have a little resource that we can all use. If you come up with any more, post a comment!
