As a rare non-Japanese origin instance, Thornyan might be based on the cactus cat from the American Southwest, a bobcat-like animal covered in needle-like hair and with a branching tail resembling a saguaro. It's said to roam through the desert at night and slash cacti open with the spikes on its paws, coming back the following nights to lap at the fermented juices.
"Thornyan" is a portmanteau of thorn and nyan. The former is also the translation of the toge part of "Togenyan", as 'toge' means spike.
"Dornyan" is a combination of dorn (thorn) and nyan.
