Changing goblins to 'Moria' was great. Now all evil factions use 'place' names for their name tag. And they are names used in Middle-earth, which is fitting.
Now only the good factions need proper names. It seems, they have to be race based, as that is the major distinction of the good factions. So, here is my take on it, with a lot of examples, and my personal choice marked in bold letters.
Men of the West
- Atani, (Quenya) - "The Second [people]" - Used (by Loremasters) for all men.
- Edain (Sindarin version) - only applied to the three houses of men that went west to beleriand and helped in the conflict against Morgoth. Ancestors of the Nûmenorians. Technically, the Rohirrim are not part of them, but they share the same ancestors (one of the three houses of men)
- Dûnedain (Sindarin) - "Men of the West" - only used for the descendents of the Nûmenorian people.
- Children of Aule (The Vala Aule created them)
- Gonnhirrim (Sindarin) "Lords of Stones"
- Khazâd (Khuzdul[dwarvish]) "Dwarves"
- Naugrim (Sindarin) "The small grown people"
- Durin's People (Durin the Deathless was/is the #1 Dwarven King of all time)
- Quendi, "Those who speak (with voices)'" - all Elves are Quendi, very old name.
- Eldar or Eldalië, "People of the Stars" - Basically all elves, but primarily used for Vanyar, Noldor and Teleri (Sindar and Nandor, most of Mirkwood and Lorien Folk) and not for the elvish people who refused to go to aman (Avari - "The Unwilling").
