What are the names into parenthesis?

The citizens of Damanhur choose to use also names of animals, plants and minerals, as a way to affirm their desire for a profound connection with Nature.

Everyone chooses their own name, and then proposes it to others during a moment of collective celebration or a community meeting. If the name “feels” right to the other citizen, than it is “officially” that person’s new name. Otherwise, other names are proposed and the person can choose if to accept it, or to postpone the acquisition of the new name to another time.
