I like changelings, eldritch horrors, and looking too deeply into how fictional species might operate.

Huh. That's a perspective I never thought of before.

Like I said, though. For me, the 'drones' of the hives are their own changeling, but non-changelings can't tell, and each changeling hive has its own distinct adaptations to their environment. The queen just has all the flashy bits.

Well, with a species spread across multiple hives relatively separate from one another, there's plenty of room for divergence - that and my changelings were originally the results of some seriously kooky magic performed on breezies, so the foundations for them having individual names were already laid.

Hmm. An opposite approach than what I chose.

The hives I focus on prefer to use individual names across castes, and the term drone isn't really used, though there are less individualistic hives out there.

Aaah, so you use the classic method of naming. The drones don't have names. They just know whom they're speaking to and whom has been called. It's not understandable by non-changelings.
