Need help inventing a guild name

By starters: No offence meant.

My personal opinion is that the Guild Names are often childish or un-professional- For example: something like Death Dealers; or Republics Finest, is either childish or lore unfriendly.

A good guild name sounds professional, while I believe that Legend doesn't sound professional but instead when I think of that guild all I see is a group of l33t speakers.

Just my 2 cents

Could you give an example of a "proffesional" guild name?

Because that's what I want it to be.. Proffesional.. No whiners, just people, having fun.. Doing stuff.. Relaxing after a hard day of work

And especially own some stuff up

Make something in Huttese. Lots of nice sounding names.

expanded beyond canon based on Quechua (the south american language that they loosely based huttese on).

Short and succinct I take it, with meaning... how about 'Epoch'. It was the first word that came to mind when I read what you were looking for. It has a good sound, it is one word and I think the definition is relevant:

A guild name is its identity. It should be something that reflects the attitude of the guild and it should be something interesting.

Are you kidding me? Because people can't come up with a name you question their ability to run a good guild? When you start a guild, it doesn't have an identity yet, an identiy comes over time. If you start with four people you can't say oh hey we're gonna call ourselves [Xxxx], even though we haven't done anything together as a guild yet, with my preternatural insight I can already predict what the attitude of the guild should be.

This person is asking for good names for a guild, what the hell is wrong with you tearing him down before he even got started. Where do you get off passing judgement on his ability to lead?

Oh dear me. Guild names are Serious Business to you. Not good, dear me, what will we do!

But, just out of curiosity, can you spell spontaneity? It goes something like, hey i want to form a guild, we'll see how it goes, now let's try to think of a good name. Simple. And it works. My guild, which has been around for a long time, is proof.

That's an approach that works for you. Not everyone needs it. Also, he asked for a name, not a lecture, and he already disagreed with your opinion, so the diatribe, really not necessary.

Best I've ever seen was "Curb Your Imperialism"

Thought that was pretty clever
