Hey! I have 3 nameless conlangs "knocking about", as you say, and I
don't particularly feel like naming them right now. Of course, one of
them is a joke to amuse my friends, that is supposed to be as ugly as
possible in pronounciation and orthography, and I just started another
yesterday. The 3rd one in question probably could use a name, but I
haven't had much time to work on it.

Ajuk went unnamed for a good long while before I came up with the name,
so why can other languages?
