We have a clue on the Bird of Prey poster.  Among other things, it says:

  tlhIngan juHqo'Daq tlhIng yoSDaq 'oH toQDuj chenmoHlu'meH Daq wa'DIch'e'

  1st Construction Site: The Kling District, Klingon Home World

Apparently, {tlhIng} is a current name for a district on the Homeworld.
Its older significance, if any, is still unknown.
