Why should it? Incorporating a language name into a character name,
as in ABKHASIAN CHE and KHAKASSIAN CHE, is done because those languages
have a letter named CHE distinct from the more usual, cross-linguistic
Cyrillic CHE. There is no such contrast in this case: we do not speak of
LATIN SMALL LETTER ICELANDIC THORN, for example.
