"Elver, Fry, Grig is nicely alphabetical..."
That's a good point, keeping them alphabetically distinct. An old and important technique for keeping characters distinct in the reader's head --and, conversely, for linking them where appropriate: e.g. Dick and Dorothea. I had thought to keep Grig and Glut similar to match Dum and Dee, but maybe otherwise would be better.
Not sure about using a collective term as a name, though. A boat is an individual. Hmm...
