Magic exists in the air, but that doesn't make all races magical. In fact, you must have the genetic ability to use magic. Magic in your veins makes you age slower. But what if a Sorcerer gives birth to a non-magical child?
Since I had to change the name of a fantasy species to be more readable and meaningful, I thought I'd share this with you so you can see how I sometimes come up with a fantasy species name. Sometimes I just sound out the name or look up a word in different languages (like Phoenicopteri was just Latin for flamingo), and sometimes I want the name to carry a certain meaning or two. Depending on what I'm looking for, my method to creating a new name will change. I will only be talking about one instance and how I resolved it.
