Eumonicists might be the Pylos official name for it, but I doubt that would be what everyone calls them. What about the originators of the language?
I'll use an illustration from a story concept that I thought up a while back.
In my story universe there is a cult of sorts that devotes it's philosophical studies to the concept of the Teknos, and its end Teknotic Nirvana (def: "The Teknos, in brief, is the fundamental element of technology. It is the force behind it, our development of it and use of it. It is not a static constant beyond our control, but is defined by humanity as a whole, although it must co-exist with the Logos (the meaning) to fully be realized. In short for the Teknos to exist in full we humans must learn to define it within the meaning of our own existence. Neither relying fully on it, or denying its use, or core utility. If we can define it as part of our core existence then it will become so close to us that we see through it, that is, it will fall below the focal point of our reality, and some may one day deny its existence altogether." ~ From the writings of Nos Tehbi) Think Budhists only cyber-punk, and devoted to technology, but my point is this: In my story they call themselves Futurans (undecided names here), but the common people call them something else, a more common term more likely to be used by common people of certain areas you know what I mean? Let's not confuse the issue by naming the 'eumonisicists' 20 things based on 20 locations, nut do you think that the common person of Titan City would call them that? It adds a certain level to the under-current culture to give common tongue names...
EDIT: BTW I like the name! lol
