I am not sure why people even agreed to renaming the entire faction, but I voted anyways.

I don't mean to offend anyone, but such a change removes the uniqueness of the faction. It's sorta lame TBH.

I agree.
By changing the khalifate to make them better fit into wesnoth they become to sth. what the desert elves already are. In 1.13 they aren't just a recolour of the default elves anymore. The name dunefolk would fit them too.

1. Maybe saying this NOW it's a bit late... :P
2. Then I want Draconian names for the Drakes and Elvish names for Elves. Let's create a new consistency. :twisted:

To be blunt, if the only thing making a faction unique really is that they don't fit in with the entire rest of the game, then they're just a poorly designed faction.

These two are the leading picks. But if you wanted to avoid using names already used by saurian units, you could instead go with:

Harasser -> Harrier
