There are plenty of canon examples of *ngan* being used in compound nouns.
Doing it for a place name that hasn't appeared that way in canon
*(pItlhberghngan*, for example) seems less like a new coinage and more like
just an extrapolation from a well-established pattern. (I'd also say the
same applies to *tej* and *QeD*, though those two have less examples that
*ngan*.)
