Assistance Requested in Naming a Secret Society
« on: January 11, 2012, 12:47:12 PM »
I am writing an anthropomorphic story, that involves a multi-species criminal (all male) organization,  similar to the Illuminati, Obviously I do not wish to USE Iluminati, I coudl use some suggestions as to what to call it. Any suggestions?

That's what they want you to believe. ;D


What about Sanctorum (not Santorum) or Sepulchre?

Hmm... in seriousness though.. it could be something like OCE (Our Curious Enterprise) if you want to go for an old English Gentleman type conspiracy. The Society of Saint Ramon, (after the saint of secrets). A small group could be soemthing like The Seven Mysterious Gentlemen.

Or, you could take a word like CLAW or TALON and turn it into an acronym.

Clearly Law-Abiding Wolves

Who would ever suspect an organization like that?

Here are some names of real secret societies. I find that when I'm trying to name something like this, I look to what's already out there and make something that similar but different so it's still believable. You might also try mixing up parts of different names to make something new.

1. The Rosicrucians or The Rosicrucian Order
2. Ordo Templis Orientis or Order of the Temples of the East
3. Hermetic Order of The Golden Dawn
4. The Priory of Sion
5. Knights of the Golden Eagle

Another thing I like to do is make up a name that sounds cool then translate it into Latin. Almost everything sounds smarter and cooler in Latin XD

If it's all male, perhaps you could call it Brothers of [insert something here].

Brothers of the Claw
Brothers of the Talon

Two options which were already suggested.
