I suggest the French name "erza"
It is the name used by the most well known French source about languages :"Les
langues du Monde" published by Société linguistique de Paris in 1952.
Moreover I strongly doubt whether http://www.eurominority.org is a valid source
for the French variant of the name. When I try to get the information in French
on the Eurominority site, the only thing I get in French is the frame and
headings display, the information itself, that is the languages names, etc.
remains in English.
_X_ I accept the indigenous name "erzjan' kel'" [with dot over first e] (if
