This May Be Harder Than I Thought

In the real world, the Dolomites are a part of the Italian Alps.

I am running an RPG set in a Greco-Roman world, and fantasy worlds always need mountains for various monsters to live in.

Dolomite, of course, makes one think of the blaxploitation character.

Therefore, clearly, the chunk of mountains in my Greco-Roman world should have a name derived from a blaxploitation character. Because that's how my mind works.

However, characters like Shaft, Truck Turner, TNT Jackson, Foxy Brown, etc., do not obviously lend themselves to pseudo-Greek or pseudo-Latin names. I suppose Willie Dynamite could lead to the Dynamites, but that's a little transparent; I'd like something that isn't English per se.
