I am not in favor of attempting any "standard" names for ski pieces unless they prove themselves to be popular. Right now, how many games have any of these pieces? Two? So I think a prefix is far more appropriate than trying to find new "standard" names for three new pieces. There are an almost infinite number of possible chess variant pieces, most of which are not worth using in most games. If you attempt to name them all, you end up with Man & Beast. Why are these pieces worth of special attention? They have not proven themselves with any popularity whatsoever.
