Considerring the arguments made by Jean-Louis Cazeaux I have changed the names of 2 of the pieces to my original intent so the griffin and aanca became dragon and griffin (meaning the aanca is called griffin now).

This seems a very bad change, and it also seems you misunderstood the arguments of Jean-Louis. For one, Griffin is the established English name for an F-then-R, and it would be very confusing to now use it for another piece. Jean-Louis never claimed the Griffin would be a suitable name for the W-then-F; only that Aanca was the historic name of the F-then-R, and that it would be bad to use it on another piece. And that Aanca referred to a monstrous mythical bird for which no English name exists.

And you now use the image of a Griffin for a piece called Dragon, and the image of a bird for a piece called Griffin...
