If you could name your blademaster blade/sword, what would you name it?

not sure if this is the right place if not could someone move it to the right spot.

After reading through the blademaster data thread and getting a few not so great names myself like Sacred Rat 

I started thinking about what i would name it if i could

I was thinking something like Howling Winds or Internal Daemons

- If you could name your blade or a new blade something , what would you call/name it?

    @Arador, and a few others could confirm, my very first blade was...

    Supreme Stallion.

    I was like... "Oh. It sounds like a porn movie title."

    Now, I have Phantom Hydras, and I also own Roaring Abomination, which was given to me.

    If I could choose it, I would like something with snow or ice.

    I would like to be able to customize the look too. I am glad I had platinum.

    I would love the ability to choose a name for blades, but at the same time I'm wary of my ability to choose something meaningful. As often as I've been screwed by the random names, I've also been blessed by seemingly innocuous selections that give rise to a significant bond between the character and surrounding events. Witness Silent Angels that was forged amidst the Bal'met events and the destruction of Shallam. It turned out to be a fitting tribute to the fallen that helped the character rethink his place in the world. Had I named it myself it would have been something stupid like Stiff Reprisal. I'm no longer a blademaster anyway so likely it should be renamed Impending Disappearance.

    The blade I got during the Bal'met event (which was also how I set myself up with allll the defences and vengeance hua hua) was something like Merciless Winds. The blade I got for a novice was Wild Kraken, which suited the Grook just fine. @Orzaansyn that gif is from a video clip that was possibly inspired by the hentai Urotsukudoji. Oh mercy why do I even know that...

    @Wysteria: DyE - Fantasy - Laurent Sarfati & Jérémie Périn. All hail the French. 

    And no, there was no hentai, but it was said to be a cautionary video dissuading students from underage sex. I'd share the video, but even I, an eldritch abomination, do not wish to be forum-shrubbed. It's available on YouTube, though[rather unsafe for work due to the material covered though].

    Also, Wysteria, there's no need to be mortified that you know some things that would implode normal, non-Internet-literate humans' neural centers. You clearly are evolving to something much more wonderful to adapt in today's digital wildlands.

    Green Destiny.

    Although I'd need to be original, so probably something like... Blue Destiny.

    (I just searched Tumblr for Green Destiny .gifs. Naturally the blog I found titled The Green Destiny was instead full of hardcore gay porn.)

    Bah, those two are terrible blademasters. No scabbard at all. They even had the audacity to dispose of the noble scabbards that they carry.

    @Synbios yah I know the song and clip. I still think the demonic transformation and them going for the reproductive parts, along with the style had a heavy influence from the movie. I saw the full film in my teens and wondered how I sat through all of it D: then again I'm strange.

    On topic: Another blade I would really like but got for another novice was Roaring Tempest. If I was a BM I would have gone for that.

    I actually liked Yearning Shadows, which was the first sword I banded on my BM. The description was horrible but the name was lovely. I regret giving it up.

    My first sword was Unrelenting Dragon, but I didn't get a band until after it decayed.  I messaged support on the off chance they'd let me use my old sword's moniker, but no dice.  Sad day.

    I'd stuck between a few ideas, like Redeeming Angel, Eternal Ocean, Angelic Sea, and some other ideas. Definitely Devo themed, sea themed, and hopefully both!

    I'd pick something just slightly angsty: 'forlorn hope', or 'gallant cruelty' or 'woeful beauty'.

    A named sword is actually something that almost draws me to Blademaster. If I could choose it would be either Crimson Rain (cliche, I know) or Frozen Heart (fits well).

    A blade master could certainly use the extra armor, not sure how useful the mana would be.

    Biggest problem for me as a BM has not been finding cool names. I've rinsed enough swords to be able to honestly say I've had at least a dozen really good names. The problem is getting a cool name that fits a specific character, An epic name for a Targossan is the worst nightmare of the Tyrannus. This is the only reason I think they should be saleable. ETA: damn you autocorrect
