The naming scheme of a character’s attacks can range from obvious to very hard to associate with a character (who could have guessed Garp’s attacks would be Celestial bodies) so this will be a lot of guess work for Mihawk. Among the options of themes to guesss from we have.

1. Darkness - Yoru translates to Night so the attack names could be like “Dark Slash” or “void slash”

void slash

2. Nighttime - Again because of Yoru, the names could be about Nighttime itself, like “lunar slash” or “dream slash”

lunar slash

3. vampirism - Since Mihawk is named after Dracula, his names could be like “Impaling thrust” or “Bloodthirsty slash”

Impaling thrust

4. Hawks - Again since Mihawk is named after a Hawk. It could be like “Talon dance” or “Soaring slice”

Talon dance

5. Eyesight - His epithet is about how good his eyesight is so it could be like “Pinpoint parry” or “precision cut”

Pinpoint parry

precision cut

6. Strongest - Because of his title like “World’s Strongest Slash” or “Unbeatable Riposte”

7. Christianity - because of the crosses and because Dracul means Son of Dragon, Dragon being the Devil. Names like “Cross Riposte” or “Gehenna Balestra”
Mihawk releasing the Haki stored in his black blade: "Ban...kai...".

Honestly though I have no real idea. If I were to guess, Oda is gonna hit us with some left field association and it will be none of these. But if his ethnicity is Romanian, there is a non-zero chance all his attacks will be based on feta cheese - possibly also wine.
I like 1, 3, 4 and 7.

I’m positive he’ll show us at least one ‘hawk’ named attack in the story.
WB and Mihawk both didnt have any attack names so far and I would like for it to stay that way tbh

just no-nonsense combat
Actually now it’s guaranteed Mihawk has Sword techniques because King doesn’t

King said he isn’t a swordsman because he doesn’t use sword techniques. And Oda demonstrated this by NEVER having King use a named sword attack… King has a named Lunarian fire attack… He has a named Zoan form attack… But he doesn’t have a named sword attack

Unless Oda has forgotten what he did with King, it’s like a guarantee that Mihawk has named attacks

a sword slash isnt stronger just because you yell out a name
Someone didn't watch the live action One Piece. Calling out the names of attacks is cool.
I want to guess vampirism because even beyond his name he's always had the gothic aesthetic going on, including his home being a castle on an island that looks like it came right out of Nightmare Before Christmas.
Fitting with his personality he's gonna be like Brook and specialize in cutting opponents with delay

His signature move will be named Postpone slash :pepezoro
