What do Ikran names mean in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora?

If you're like us, you've probably asked yourself "what do the Na'vi language Ikran names mean" when you acquired your Ikran in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora for the first time. Before now, there has been no official word on whether or not the names have translations or meanings behind them, they were simply a selection of Na'vi language names that didn't have any further definitions. That changed overnight when Paul Frommer, creator of the Na'vi language, published a vocabulary update that included most of the names listed in-game.

If you want to know what the Banshee names mean in Avatar: Frontiers, you're in luck. Here's a comprehensive list of the ones we know so far. Tap or hover over them for translations:


Unfortunately, Temek and Nimun were not included in the list of revealed Ikran names, however they may be added to the Na'vi dictionary at a future point. For now, players who chose those names will have to imagine for themselves what they might mean!

Frommer also revealed Na'vi names for a broad selection of flora and fauna from Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, which is sure to thrill anyone who is learning Na'vi. You can find the full list of new words on Frommer's Na'vi language blog, Naviteri.
