    When I think of Asian cranes i think of the Red-Crowned Crane in Japan
    In Japan, this crane is known as the tancho and is said to live for 1,000 years. In the Ainu language, the Red-crowned Crane is known as sarurun kamuy or marsh kamuy.

    -dont think tancho is a good option but you may be able to find a name or inspiration from sarurun kamuy
    from my limited knowledge of Japanese and not knowing about translations and spelling practices for wikipedia, R's and L's are backwards in Japan so Sarurun would be said Salulun which sounds very elegant (if used, please spell phonetically to make life easy on everyone lol)


    while on wikipedia i checked out Herons as well and they are in the family Ardeidae which could be workable as it seems lovely. Theres two major genera, Ardea and Egretta.

    and there is also the Ibis - similar to Isis so probably easily accepted by people.



    Favs:
    Salulun
    Ardea
    Aviana
    Halcyon
    Palila
