So, one of my main races is a reptilian (specifically dragon/draconic) race called Drāckonians. I’ve previously had trouble coming up with a better name (to avoid issues regarding how similar it is to ‘Draconian’), but I recently found an old note that ‘Drāckonian’ is supposed to be a translation of their real name.
What I’m wondering is, would that be sufficient? And what if I came up with a name in the Drāckonian language that is their ‘real’ name, but only Drāckonians use it? They would still be commonly called Drāckonians, but that’s not actually what they call themselves, if that makes sense.
(And any random name ideas to inspire me, if I go down this road, would be helpful. It’s optional though)
(Also, any additional ideas to add to this whole concept are accepted)
