Gnome society is divided into major houses, each of which is composed of multiple families. House Sivis, for instance, is itself composed of 12 different families, which include the Torralyns, Severins, Lyrrimans, Syrralans, Corralyns, and Santors.

Each gnome has three names: his personal name, the name of his family, and the name of his house. For example, ''Lysse Lyrriman d'Sivis'' and ''Tala Torralyn d'Sivis'' are members of different families within House Sivis.

Their names are long and lyrical; a Zil proverb clams ''the sweetest song is the name of a friend''. Personal and house names average three syllables in length, & there is a strong tradition of alliteration.
