Ménétries -- you mean Ménétrier? -- would be quite good, it just means "fiddler" (A witch fiddling around with magic?) Côté -- would be perfect, but is too common...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Judging by Wiktionary, the vowels in göttlich and Öl have an un-trilled /r/ tagged onto the end in Standard German. Having fronted [o→ø], does Dyoan need the trilled /r/ in words similar to ᴀʟꜱɪɴᴅᴏᴇʀ? Although I don't hear anything rhotic in " göttlich ", the audio Wiktionary gives for " Öl " sound...
