Etymology

The coeurl is a fictional alien race created by science-fiction writer A. E. van Vogt. Coeurls also appear in other fantastical environments, such as the game Dungeons & Dragons (as Displacer Beasts) and the anime Dirty Pair. Coeurls are generally described to be cat-like in appearance, with longer forelimbs and tentacles.

Torama is possibly a play on the Japanese word for "tiger", "tora".
