Aponivia originates from the Lissian goddess Aponivi who is the creator of the world in early Lissian mythology. The name originally referred to all lands between the Austra (Aponivians) and Sutem (Nalps) mountain ranges. Early in the Dallacquan Empire's reign over much of the area, Aponivi started appearing on maps in reference to the western mountains. Tretridian explorers often used Dallacquan maps, so the term Aponivian was adopted into the Tretridian language. Most tribes eventually adopted the same name for the mountain range, relegating the original term to traditional ceremonies and folklore.
