How about Calormare, pronounced "Cal-uh-mar-ay"

Corruption of "calamari", which is fried squid in Mediterranean countries, Calor is latin for heat, and Mare is latin for ocean.

This is cool, it might work better on the pronunciation if in had, say, a "y" at the end of it. So "Calormarey" or you could even go "Calormaray". It seems like that could work better as far as pronouncing it right when you see it. A mare is also another animal (female sheep, I think?) so it could be confusing. Now who knows if it'll even matter, this may not get picked anyway. But it's still a good one :)

Calormare


Corruption of "calamari", which is fried squid in Mediterranean countries, Calor is latin for heat, and Mare is latin for ocean.

Pronounced: Kal-ore-MAR-ay

After some consideration, I stuck with my original post, simply because I like the way it sounds/looks over calormari.
