Ah, well, you see, I didn't know that; and I have to admit it doesn't really change my opinion on the matter, since "liger" is not a real word in my book, any more than (for instance) "cockerpoo", "puggle", or "zorse". Unaware that it was in fact a cutesy label for a hybrid animal, I gave it equal romanization weight with "Ryger" (which is how it's rendered in at least one official translation I've seen, albeit one in Italian) and decided I liked the latter's ring better.

I must say, it's a reasonably refreshing change of pace to get gigged for being too original. :)
