Is there a dictionary of Anitami job names somewhere?

Neli is the track for national political office; Aven is judge; Alasi is one of several for a singer; Kisantami is theoretical computer science; Tis is actor; Lalail is carver; Salasi is the track for administrative/regulatory positions; Fale is an administrative assistant, I think that's all that have been introduced so far.

In general, roles that have been around forever have short names and recently-invented careers have longer ones.

To what degree is there a fixed set of possible names for each job, and to what degree can you pick anything you like as long as it's appropriate? (Did Makel need to choose one of "Singer" or "Music" or "Voice," or would he also have been fine choosing "Nightingale" or "Aria"?)

And along similar lines: is it plausible to choose a name which is sufficiently vague/symbolic/ambiguous that it would be acceptable for more than one profession? Maybe even of different castes? (Presumably a pianist as well as a singer could choose "Music"; maybe a politician could choose "Voice" in the sense of "a voice for the poor and oppressed"?)

It's not exactly fixed but there are weird and less weird options and you don't want one that is a nonweird name for an unrelated job.

Will we ever see an Amentan Bell? I have a feeling that the poor dear might find it as suffocating as Boots/Aether found Materia.

An Amentan Bell would probably be stifled, but not so terrified.

I am imagining her/him as an orange doctor/therapist that would get romantically involved with a blue.

Doctor seems likely, Bells have stated before before magic got dropped on them that they might want to go into medicine.

Is "marrying blue" a thing? I guess it could happen between rich purples and poor blues.
