Tiidnavir?

I translated my title of "Storm Lineage" once; and got "Strun Tiidnavir", but ever since, I have not been able to find an actual translation for the term "Lineage"; so I must ask, is "Tiidnavir" a real word in dovahzul, or is it assumed to be a real word from a different term.

Tiidnavir was a fan-made construction of the canon word Tiid (time) and the non-canon word Ragnavir (family). The translator you used to find "lineage" is the Legacy Translator, which pulls its words from the Legacy Dictionary. They were the old translator and dictionary before we decided to stop making and supporting fan-made material.

There's a simple solution in canon Dovahzul, though. Being of a lineage can be considered arguably the same as being "(whatever lineage or attribute)-born", so Strunkiin is a perfectly valid alternative.
