We had a little discussion on monster names in angband on angband.live

Summary:
Sil has some good names for demons, using appropriate Sindarin words+Rauko (demon). In angband (and particularly in FA) there are a bunch of demons derived from DnD that could be renamed appropriately.
Heleg = ice (Gelugon) (Sil uses Ring(a) (as in Ringil), meaning cold.)
Aithorn = lightning (Pazuzu)
Lhw= disease (Osyluth)
Sangwa, hloima=poison
https://www.elfdict.com/w/blood any number of names for blood or Gore

Also, makes little sense to have both Fury and Erinyes (original Greek name) for different demons.
