I'm writing a Steampunk story and now I'm stuck.I have a rival gang and I don't know what to call them.Any help would be great.
My first gangs name is called the Scoundrels, that is run by a man called Lucius Steele,but he goes by Steele.

I'm a 30 year old girl/woman(makes me sound older than I like to be). I'm new to the whole Steampunk thing.Eventually I'll post my gun pic.It's completely painted,it just needs some touch ups and it's done. I love the look of Steampunk and I am working on an adventurer/archaeologist costume.
The picture is a pic. of me though.

The Rogues? The Jets are already taken...

It's got a good start. One thing that might help (having meself written a bit of pr0n, er, erotica...if there's to be a bit of knee-trembling later on, perhaps a bit of emotional conflict...i.e., she sees the woman, she's put off slightly by the forwardness, yet finds herself ambivalent about her feelings. There should be a slight amount of attraction to combat her manners. It will help with the believability factor later on...two feelings moving in opposite directions, reconcile somewhere later in the book.

That being said, I'm only guessing as to how these things work betwixt two women...so please feel free to ignore the above.

[Apologies - I've just seen the original posting date, this now seems more like necrophilia than sapphism.]

What kind of gang?  If it's a street gang, get your geography involved maybe - like "The Seventh Street Irregulars" or "The Northpoint Kings"

Or get a little creative with things like "The Five Penny Lords."

Stealing from one source is plagarization, Stealing from multiple sources is research.

That being said, from the classic movie (and realted video game) "The Warriors," I present this list for your inspiration:
From the movie and the video game
 ■The Baseball Furies
■The Riffs
■The Hi-Hats
■The Boppers
■The Hurricanes
■The Lizzies
■The Yo-Yo’s

A lot of gangs were named after the street / neighborhood they originated from - maybe that could help?

Steam5183,
Perhaps if you told us more about this rival gang, we'd be better able to come up with names.

Theres a series about a UK gang called the peeky blinders
