Repasto wrote:On the index, Ikpi refers to Maori but also Aboriginal (and in practice it seems to be used to describe an Aboriginal population). It might be better to use "Ikpi" for Aboriginal and another name for Maori (I would suggest "Mātou" or something similar), considering that these really are separate, individual cultures.

Obviously I'm very late to this but I'm not convinced this was entirely necessary. While I have no special claim to the Ikpi people, the identity which I'd built up was one which was not directly based on either Maori or Aboriginal Australians. Given that there is such diversity within the "Aboriginal Australian" label, I'd established that the Ikpi were extremely diverse with various different groups using the label or having it applied to them by others. The "Ikpi people" wiki page goes highlights this and contains aspects of both Maori and Aboriginal Australian culture and tradition. As I say, I'm probably too late in my objection but I think this is a case of having too much direct symmetry between real-life and Particracy when it isn't necessary.

Could someone with a better understanding of Greek come up with names for Xenophon and Aristotle, please?

My Greek was never that good and by now it's rusty as hell, so I recommend waiting for a second opinion.

"Aristotle" is derived from "aristos"-"best" and "telos"-"goal", "aim".

Two synonyms of "aristos" are "beltistos" and "kratistos".
A word with a meaning similar to that of "telos" is "stochos", meaning "target" "aim".

So one of these might do:
Beltistochos / Beltistoch
Beltistostochos /Beltistostoch
Kratistochos / Kratistoch
Kratistostochos / Kratistostoch

Same disclaimer as above.

"Xenophon" is derived from "xenos" - "foreign", "alien" and "phone" - "sound", "language".

A synonym of "xenos" is "allodapos".
A shorter word would be "allos" - "other", "different".
A word with a meaning similar to that of "phone" is "glossa" or "glotta" - "tongue", "language".

So maybe:
Alloglossos
Alloglottos
Allodapoglossos
Allodapoglottos

Alternatives for Aristotle:

He is sometimes called "the Stagirite" after his hometown. You could choose an adequate city and name him after it.
Maybe a family name? Both his father and son were called "Nikochamos". Hence his "Nicomachean Ethics".
