Same is not the case for objects, somehow, if names are generic.
Maybe the word "Polish" just happened to feel good as a description to characters. If that's my story, who are you to say that's not the way it is? I can be anything I want in Cantr! If I say that "Polish" feels good and right, who are you to say that it's wrong?
Really, Cantr borrowed 99.9% of everything from Earth, and yet people balk when part of the 0.1% gets borrowed too, for the sake of convenience in a game that people are playing a few minutes per day, as intended by its creator.
