Hello all! So authors go both ways on ideas with both original and generic naming, but which do you prefer? Several authors right now are writing about vampires, but some vampires are different than other vampires. They are all called vampires though, would it bother you if someone gave vampires an original name? Would a species that has the main defining characters as what we would call a vampire but it's called a bladapsha in the books universe bother you? Every time you read bladapsha would it just instantly translate to vampire? Would reading bladapsha annoy you in to thinking "Call it a vampire already!". J.R.R. Tolkien eventually named the immortal, beautiful, and fading race elves, but he even said that he was sort of disappointed with that name, but he still stuck to it in the end. Back when he was writing about elves they were more thought of as the little fairy type creatures in the forest in fiction that what they are thought of presently. So what are your opinions?
