In general Styrásh names are constructed by combining two substantives rather than an adjective and a substantive, Twen. So if I take my person favourite from the ones you have presented, then it would be "artajén'ór", and if we use the substantive rather than the adjective, it is "artaj'ór", and this has a really cool ring to it if you ask me. The meaning of that name is also very fitting: "Honour Flame" or "Flame of Honour". Members of that "Order" would be called the "artajorín", which I think is also quite cool.

That's of course only the name of the Order in Styrásh. I thought mainly about a Styrásh term that is an equivalent to the human term "Order", you know... ;) When we look into the Styrásh dictionary we already have a term for "order", which is "thamás" (and "thamán" means "to order"). Of course this is a somewhat different meaning, but we could still use it as a based, because "Orders" are there to guarantee "order", so the name of the organisation could be for example "thamasár".

The "elven Order" of the "Flame of Honour" would then be in Styrásh the "Thamasár Artajoriás". - How about that?

"Thamasár Artajoriás" this does have a very beautiful ring to it Arti. Yet does not the 'iás' imply female gender? I think it does, and I was kinda looking for a neutral gender for the order as gender would not play a role in an elven order, I would guess. The ending 'énh' implies f/m plural, no? If I am not mislead in this idea would 'Thamasár Artajorénh' be properly constructed?

The "Artajoriás" is the genitive plural of "Artajorín" (which is the nominative plural form). So actually this is the masculine form. The feminine form would be (nominative) "Artajoría", and the genitive is "Artajoriás" as well - so either way, the form is correct...
