You are absolutely correct, as always, Talia. I didn't want to presume, but I would love it if our resident Masterbard has time and energy enough to ply her artistic skill to the body parts! I hope she may, I hope she might lend her prowess, that it may look right! cool

Edits made today in yellow:

Cudgel bone for humerus
8 Fetlock bones for carpal bones of wrist
5 Gemelus bones for metacarpal bones of hand

Does anyone know of a pair of twins that I could name the radius & ulna bones after?

EDIT: Radius named 'fore bone', ulna named 'styloid bone'
Mallet & anvil bones for talus and calcaneus
Dedons named for toes

'Tinglebone', 'armcap', and 'armknee' for the elbow/elbow joint?
'Kickbone', 'kneecap', and 'legshield' for, well, the kneecap?

'Tarn' is a dark pool of water.  'Eyetarn' might well be another lovely word for the pupil of the eye.

Spine, backbone, tailbone, peakbones all feasible for the spine - perhaps 'spine-tendon', 'spine-rope' or 'Lord-Nerve' for the spinal cord?  We should certainly have a sense of its importance to the functioning of the body.

Sternum have a name yet?  Writing late and too lazy/tired to look it up.  How about 'breast-bone', 'chest-plate', 'gullet-plate', 'lung armour', or something similar?   And while I have always loved the xiphoid process as a name, I think we'd better give it an alternate:   breastbone tail, breast-crest... oooh, just thought! In birds that area is called the 'keel', like on a boat!  Wouldn't that be perfect for the sternum?  'Keelbone'.... oh yeah...

Similarly, the rostrum of the nose (I think that's correct) could be the 'skull prow' or 'prowbone' and the cartilaginous rest of the nose the 'prow fender' or 'prowpad'.    Perhaps just as we have 'bone' as a common denominator in these names, cartilage would also have its own distinguishing name, a sort of rubbery one...

Ok, too tired for more creativity tonight.  See if any of those are useful, do!
