It had a placeholder name?
All I remember was Igniters being the placeholder for Inika
Hang on, maybe it was for the Avohkii...
There is definitely no placeholder name for the Avohkii in the Official Guide, and I'm fairly certain there isn't one at all. I think it was for the Ignika.
Had to go back well into BS01's history, but I found the Avohkii placeholder name: Korusca.
That name choice is pretty interesting IMO since it's pretty clearly derived from Latin (corusco can mean "I flash, glitter"). You never really think of Latin names showing up during pre-Umbra, but evidently TLG was taking some classical inspiration even in the early years (the only other example I know of is Ignalu from ignis "fire" and nalu, which is Hawaiian for "wave"). The form coruscant "they flash, glitter" is supposedly where Coruscant from Star Wars got its name as well (although apparently the word "coruscant" has made its way into English independently of the planet).
