Since it's got a fleur de lis, why not give it a French thmed name like "the Chevalier?"

Albion has a sword named that. As a consumer, I dislike when makers choose names already used in the marketplace.

I agree with you Nathan 100%, brother...

Your tongue is your sword, & your mouth is your shield; what you say can stab you, & what you don't say can protect you...

Never mind then. I wasn't aware that the name was already taken by Albion as I don't follow what names the majority of the companies give to their swords. It was just a name that I thought suited the piece at the time.

I tend to agree with you on that as well Nathan though I will say that many of the names Albion uses were names used by CAS Iberia and Valiant Armoury years before Albion used them.
Without going into the realm of fantasy, I.e. (Breathtaker, soul reaver and the like) it is sometimes difficult to arrive at a quality good sword name without repeating something used by another maker

Very strong point made right there, Sonny. Very strong point indeed...

Yep. I don't like that they used them, either.
