Gryphon is just as valid as Griffin, and more authentic historically. It is Griffon that is aberrant, and that form still appears on your Ganymede Chess page. Still, at least you have got Gnu right, which others have not. By the way, a 3:1 leaper on its own is called the Camel, and the Gnu can lose the move with a 45-45-90 triangle of two Knight moves and a Camel move.
