I see someone asked about the 24-gon, 48-gon, 96-gon. The
"official" names are

icositetragon

tetracontaoctagon

enneacontahexagon

if anyone cares. A "myriagon" would be a polygon with 10000 sides.

The word "macaronic" is usually used for a word made of pieces
from several languages - one doesn't need "linguistic heteromorph"!
