What Chaos Space Marine Chapter Name to use?

I have been pondering what chapter name to use for my new Chaos Space Marine army. Originally I wanted them to be Death Guard, but I got to thinking that I might like to play more than just a Nurgle-aligned CSM army. So I wanted to come up with some kind of splinter chapter that is mainly aligned to Nurgle, but can have some non-Nurgle aligned units if I want.

In trying to decide on a name for the chapter, I really want the name to include the word 'Blight', but from there I am not sure. There are a lot of good ways this can used.

My first instinct was to use Blightlords. I searched the internet to see if the name was already being used for a CSM chapter, and it isn't. But it is being used quite a bit in other games. Should this deter me from using it? It probably shouldn't.

Anyway, I came up with a couple of names and I have put a poll on the far right column. Please take a minute and vote for your favorite to help me decide. Thanks.

Blightlords is good, also conjures images of some Night Lords that fell to Nurgle, which could be fun. Maybe they were originally smaller Death Guard and Night Lords warbands that merged and have since picked up others along the way.

Not a bad idea, sonsoftaurus. I may just use that. Thanks!

Going with that thought, in the past I've seen the older raptor models used as Nurgle raptors and they'd go well with those blight drones of yours...
