What's in a name?

Here's the suggestions we have so far:

It's the Fraki system, and thus the homeworld is "Fraki II". The Vepela live there, and call their planet Palimbus.
I was thinking we would look in some entymological dictionaries to perhaps connect the names of the people to Latin/Greek roots -- maybe concerning the environment, or the ability to sense ephemeral things.

Vepela sounds fine with me, but I'm having trouble swallowing "Fraki". Don't know why, but it just doesn't sound "real" to me. How about Duronis instead? The Vepela live on Duronis II, and call their planet Palimbus. Anyone?

I like "Duronis," but I feel that "Palimbus" sounds too much like "Nimbus" -- which reminds me of one of the TOS Movies.

Laudeans sounds better. Vepela I think sounded too much like Capella (with the High Te'er, and Aka'ar). And honour is a laudable goal (pun intended), but what about the energy and/or nature theme we were trying to go for? Any luck on that front?
If we don't like Palimbus (And I think you're right there, too), what if they called their world Tilahn?
Anyone else have ideas?

Actually, I don't need the latter, but the factions I do. Remember, somtimes Civ destroys factions, so youmay end up with one or two fewer.

Race: the Laudeans (like Human)
Native name for system: the Luxis system (like Sol system)
Native name for planet: Tilhon (like Earth)
Federation name for system: the Duronis system (remember, we started with our system, so still like Sol system)
Federation name for planet: Duronis II (like Terra, or Sol II)
Now, if anyone has a problem with any of this, speak now or forever hold your peace.
And Idril, try it with 5 countries/factions and see what happens.
