I feel bad whenever I complain here without offering any solutions. So instead spare a thought for the writer of Public Domain Review, who has improved my life as much as has Geoff Manaugh: https://publicdomainreview.org/collections/x-is-for/ “In this example, the despair is palpable. They’ve simply refused to offer up any word beginning with X, instead using the space to comment on the difficulty.”

Xiphos is sword in Greek, which also explains the xiphias swordfish.

Fortunately, monster manuals can always make up shit like xorn, xvarts, and xeg-yi.
