 From qepHom 2020:

This seems to be made up of tar "poison" and ngeb "be fake," but Maltz
had no idea why this element would be called "fake poison," so maybe
it's just a coincidence.

See also: {targho'nI'} "tungsten":

Here's another element that seems to have something to do with poison
(tar), though Maltz didn't know what gho'nI' might mean. He said he'd
never noticed a connection between poison and some elements before and
doesn't know what to make of it. Did Klingons at some point use uranium
and/or tungsten to make poison?
