The word 'topleron' was borrowed in the middle period from the product name Toblerone, a kind of chocolate candy, as the word for 'prism', based on its triangular shape. It is mostly used as a noun, but as a verb is can be used as a pali verb meaning to generate a rainbow. The modifier form 'topleronys' means 'prismatic'.

During the early modern period, the AXZ tried to get 'eosyn kitca', 'light divider', to be accepted instead, but failed except in the most technical contexts.
