A nod to Deep Roy, who plays the character. I did something similar in my aborted Abramsverse novel a couple years back -- I dubbed Keenser's people the Purba, after Deep Roy's birth name of Mohinder Purba. I was told to cut out the reference since the filmmakers reserved the right to name his species for themselves (even though I'd deliberately left it vague whether it was the name of his species or just a nation or clan thereof). Now it turns out they've derived his species name pretty much the same way I did. Oh, well.
