Gashifa is a name given to the world earlier known as Menem after the foundation of the global Union, Gishefa. Menem remains the predominant name given to the planet by its inhabitants, though Gashifa is the name most widely used by offworlders and in all official documents produced by Gishefa.

Etymology Edit

Gashifa means "the place of the Union" in the Uajiren language. A-i is a locative infix, paired with the consonantal root g-s-f meaning "union."
