cool sword names

Two really cool names for swords are: Oblivion’s Nail and Grimsliver.

Actually, wait, strike that second one. It sounds cool if you say “Grim sliver” but if you look at it, you could misread it as “Grims liver.” And while a grim sliver is cool, there is nothing cool about grim liver. Or liver belonging to Grim.

But Oblivion’s Nail is still really awesome.

I am cooking dinner on Wednesday and trying out some new marinades. I haven’t yet decided if I’m going to make chicken or steak; the steak I bought was fairly inexpensive, so if is to be edible at all it must be marinaded at least overnight. I’m kind of excited about cooking something, since I haven’t really done any actual cooking in awhile. Kara and I spent quite a while in the grocery store last night, and I picked up a bunch of stuff. Hopefully it turns out well.

I have a few new tasks at work that I’m half foot dragging on, and half just letting them work themselves out in my brain before I get hardcore into trying to solve them. Guess I should go start working on them now.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Since this was first published back in 2005, it has become the #2 result on Google for “cool sword names.” I should start a custom sword-naming business or something.

In honor of this, here are some more cool sword names for the list:

  • Bloodquench
  • Winterthorn
  • Anger’s Tear
  • Ragespike
  • Silencer

EDITOR’S NOTE 2: For some reason, this entry persists in being the #2 Google result for “cool sword names.” The rest of it is my personal blog…if you’ve come here via Google, feel free to browse other entries, which are random articles I’ve written, usually based on my interests, recent activities, or random thoughts. Hope you enjoy!

    You forget one thing – someone might not hear you say “Oblivion’s Nail”, and hear it as “Oblivion Snail”, which isn’t very scary.
    My favourite sword names are – Terminus Est – “This is the end”, and Aeco Soeri – “Augmenter of Pain”.
    Each to their own though! ;-)

    I love how this article out of all the others still gets regular visitors. :)

    There’s an interesting article on right now that mentions how swords always have interesting names, and a lot of attention is paid to their forging. But not so much other weapons…you can almost picture Rambo naming his knife, but his rocket launcher is sadly anonymous.

    At any rate, here are three more sword names:

    Undertaker’s Nail
    Wrecked ‘Em
    Die Bitch
