Bactrificent


"Bactrian" + "Magnificent"

Pronounced: "back-TRIHF-ih-cehnt"

CAP 31's design is inspired by camels; specifically, Bactrian camels. The term "magnificent" is multi-meaning, both referring to the splendorous glamor and aesthetic CAP 31 has, but more interestingly referencing one of history's most renowned sultans: Suleiman the Magnificent. With Suleiman in mind, connotative precedent regarding the word magnificent is established with sultans, which are notably another point of inspiration used in CAP 31's design.

Mansamund


Mansa Musa + diamond + mound

Pronounced: MAHN-suh-muhnd

Mansa Musa felt like a perfect thematic tie-in, being the classic example of an opulent desert king with strong ties to camels and caravans. The spelling of -mund versus -mond makes the pronunciation clearer while also connecting to mounds, either of sand or the humps on Mansamund's back.

Camullahairs


Camel + Mullah + Airs

Pronounced: ka-MUHL-uh-airs

Mullah = head of a mosque
Airs = "affected manners intended to impress others", e.g. "The politician put on airs at the fundraiser" -- fits 31's royal smugness
Also it is hairy, and the name sounds like that of a certain second-in-command :bloblul:
