But Shudariadne and Bisiriadne and Tanariadne all sound quite similar, so that gets confusing.

Just think of them as Shudar, Bisir, and Tanar. Is -iadne an actual prefix, by the way? If so, what does it mean?
Goddamnit kitkat, you make me look late

-riadne (ˈriɑd-ˌneɪ)

A Terran suffix which means "planet" or "world".


EDIT:


Shuda (ʃu-ˈdä) is a Terran term for "city".

Bisi (bi-ˈsi) means "capital", or in this particular case "historical capital".

Tana (ˈtä-nä) means "government", but in this context it primarily means "administrative capital".


EDIT:


I should really make a basic word sheet, huh?

What's up with the Terran part? Is Earth involved somehow? What am I missing?

Terran-ixians. I can fill this part in, I kept up to speed with the EY.
The Terran-Ixians were one of the Nameless' vassal races that broke free, Terran being a suffix for slave or something like that in Nameless tongue if I recall correctly.
Terran-Ixians then either created or somehow got involved with the Orealyans, which when the Ixians left became the Orealyanis.
Sorry, Yuu, if any of this is off, I'm working off of memory. Trying to save you a bit of work :)

Thanks!

That summed it up pretty well.

For anyone that's wondering how the Orealyians became Orealyianis, their genetic data was basically modified to incorporate a semblance of Terran-Ixian anatomy and physiology.

Very nice! I love how simply alien it is. It sort of reminds me of Larry Niven and Alien Planet. Like a gw'oth and a sea strider? I dunno. Speaking of Niven, a very ancient precursor race was commonly known as the Slavers (really Thrintun), so this is a reversal: The advanced precursor guys are the slavees, not the slavers.

...Just a little something I thought of.
