I've been wondering about this for some time, since I've seen these names spelled differently throughout the series (well, the last one was only mentioned in TGO and TUC, but it still applies). I'd like to know what are the "official" correct spellings?

-"Cū'jara-Cinmoi" or "Cū'jara Cinmoi"? (I'm guessing the former because Bakker spelled his username that way?)
-"Nin'janjin" or "Nin-janjin"?
-"Cet'moyol" or "Cet'moiol"?

That's actually how I spelled his display name. I would have gotten the spelling from TTT Glossary, probably.

The wiki also has it as "Cū'jara-Cinmoi", so I'm going to suppose that comes from the TTT glossary as well. I think that the spelling with the space rather than with the hyphen started to crop up more in TAE.
If I remember correctly, "Nin'janjin"/"Nin-janjin" seems to be fairly inconsistent throughout the whole series, though.

Though, now that I recall, in TWP there's a Nil'gikas in one of Seswatha's Dreams.

I also remember him being referred to as "Nil-Giccas" somewhere in PON, though I didn't add him to my list as his name seemed to be consistently spelled as "Nil'giccas" all throughout TAE.

Anasūrimbor Nimeric also had his given name spelled as "Nymeric" in PON, but again, I think it was just the one time.
