All those are from the books.

A simple thing to do is to search for some latin greek and/or hebrew names and take the good ones.

Agreed! The web is your best resource for this project.

Personally I wouldn't us GM names for PAGKs or regular GKTs though, but that's just me Rolling Eyes

That's what I have done. Though I tend to go for more Latin names and leave the Hebrew biblical ones for Dark Angels.

From the proposed Exodite codex due for a potential release in 2013:

'Exodite Eldar have long come to terms with the fact that their carnosaurs are incapable of taking on the battletanks and aircraft of the lesser races. To this end they have created mechanised armour, crafted from the wraithbone cores of their maiden worlds, to create an exosuit capable of taking the battle to the enemy whilst retaining the strength and power of their mounts.'

Thats right, they're creating the Grimlock suit to fight the Optimus suit.

Maybe they will create a Demonic Suit to fight the Grimlock and Optimus suits once they bring out a new codex for us.

But really Exodite Eldar getting theyr own codex?Thats the same as giving each Traitor Legion one or every different Space Marine chapter one.....
oh wait they allready did that.

No. That's Alpha Legion disinformation.

On the other hand, it does sound like the kind of thing GW would do...

If exodites got a codex, it would seem likely it would at the same time update the eldar codex, which is a steaming pile of carnosaur manure at the moment.
I mean there are worse codexes, but few less boring for competitive play.
That being said I think its rather unlikely, most likely is that a codex would come out for craftworld and exodites and be customisable for both.

CSM deserves a codex though that supports all the traitor legions specifically.

Like the last Codex?Oh yeah I have heard the oh so great sea of options and stuff,which means yeah you won't see a same army twice,but it was rather hard for your opponent to understand just what you Lord could do,for example and I have heard the oh so wonderful Iron Warriors of old.Maybe its just me,but I do think that this codex is better imo anyway,but I would still like an update for it.

I personally use Teutonic (basically German) names, because the Grey Knights always struck me as being based off of the Teutonic Knights. Maybe that's just me.
Anyway here are some names I use:
Aldrich
Mannfred
Konrad
Hermann
Leo
Rudolph
Seigfreid
Ulric
Tyrell
Varik

On the subject of an exodite dex - wouldn't surprise me, with SoB getting a WD dex, and the rumour that CSM are being sent back to a legion dex with current CSM rules being represented by a WD renegade space marines mini dex I could easily see an Exodite one.
