Synonym:  {'orghen}  Organia (TKD:K-E)

KGT 142:  The syllable {ya'} seems to be used as if it were a suffix meaning "place name". Thus, Ligon has sometimes been called {lIghonya'} in addition to {lIghon}, Organia is both {'orghenya'} and {'orghen}, and Cardassia is both {qarDaS} and {qarDaSya'}. The {-ya'} cannot be added to all planet names, however.
