Might I make a suggestion? I know the traditional Malkioni spells have been full of dull pragmatic names, such as Kill Rat or Analyse Magic. These would be the Zzaburi or Brithini names. For spells which comes from other sources, such as the Hrestoli, the Abiding Book or even Xeotam, you give the spells a slightly more poetic flavour with the Brithini equivalent in brackets, such as Awaken the Lions Heart (Bravery) or such like.
