Isn't the Qa'Hom shown in Star Trek: Klingon a ligonian titmouse (lIghon Qa'Hom), though? It's probably similar to a Kronosian Qa'Hom, but it might differ slightly.

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}?
