There's a chancellor who goes by the names of ghawran, torgh, valQIS, and
several other names as well.

I want to say "they call the chancellor as ghawran, torgh, valQIS, and by
several other names".

So I write:

QangvaD ghawran, torgh, valQIS, latlhmey je luponglu'

Or perhaps:

QangvaD ghawran, torgh, valQIS, latlh pongmey je luponglu'

Are the above two klingon sentences correct? Or do these sentences actually
say that "they call the chancellor ghawran, torgh, valQIS, and they call
him {latlhmey}/{latlh pongmey} as well"?

Does the presence of the {latlhmey}/{latlh pongmey} in the "name slot" of
the {XvaD Y ponglu'} construction necessarily mean that they are to be
understood as actual names, instead of normal words?
