Why is this linked with Chaugnar Faugn? --2602:306:CD79:31B0:548F:1B4C:1B38:5616 (talk) 08:27, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

George Olshevsky named the snub uniform polyhedra after Cthulhu Mythos deities. Indexed by Wenninger's book, W110 is "Hastur", W111 is "Chaugnar Faugn", W112 is "Dagon", W113 is "Cthulhu", W114 is "Nyarlathotep", W115 is "Shub-Niggurath", W116 is "Tsathoggua", W117 is "Azathoth", and W118 is "Yog-Sothoth". The last is by far the most used for any of these. None of these are notable enough to really be mentioned in the article, but the redirects seem reasonable if anyone notices them on polyhedron "hobbyist" sites, some of which use them.
