For the translation of the intro of a famous German children TV show I 
have asked Marc Okrand how I'd best name their main characters which are 
a mouse and an elephant. Okrand talked to Maltz and replied with the 
following. It's not really a new word, but at least some canon spelling 
of a terran animal.

Lieven —

I think {Qa'Hom} is okay for "mouse."

And Maltz wasn't aware of any native Klingon elephant-like animal.  So 
go with a Klingon version of Federation Standard.  How about {'e'levan}?
