Sorry to ask again, Arunas.

Does your yes go to this question:

Is "little male bee / drone" the only meaning that TRANELIS can have?


And would Z`´IOGELIS and VORELIS as names derived from insects sound positive: "small little locust" and "small little spider"?


Especially VORELIS. Can an insect like "spider" become "nice little spider" in folk poetry? 


It is more possible that Tranelis means "son of Tranas", Zhiogelis means "son of Zhiogas", Vorelis means "son of Voras".
