Cutiepilar and Agropod
Cu - Copper
Ag - Silver
Au - Gold
So I'm sort of going for the no-encyclopedia-necessary approach with these names, since the latin entries have probably got that side covered. Cutiepilar should be self-explanatory, and is fun, imo. Agropod is a mashup of "agro," shorthand for agricultural references and a homonym to "aggro," which is shorthand for aggression, with the "pod" suffix borrowed from Metapod.
Umm Birkal's entries are really solid and match the artwork. I like all the fancy things people are trying to do with the latin roots and all that, but I also want to warn against trying to do too much at once or trying too hard, because sometimes those names just come out as letter-smash and there's nothing to be done about it. I also like Cuprapilar, posted by srk, but Chrysilva looks like Chrysler (the car maker) to me and so I keep saying "CRY-silva" to myself and I know that's wrong. Idk, is Crysilva any better? "silva" I'm sort of having trouble with, as it is obviously slangy compared to Cuprapilar.
