Naming this group of people in my novel?

So in my book, my protagonist has electricity powers. Later on he finds out there are more like him. More with similar powers, but only a few. I want to name this small group of electric people, but I can’t think of anything. Writing the first draft, I had called them Energizers, but I never planned on using that permanently. So does anyone have any other names that could work?

    How about the Volts or Hertz?

    Well...you can name them FOR something

    or AFTER something

    that is related to the unusual characteristic.

    The name should also be relevant to whatever culture the people belong.

    For example: you might call them "children of Zeus"

    - which would be especially good in a Greek culture, but OK in any Western culture

    or "shockers"

    or "generators"

    or "Franklins" (after Ben Franklin, who experimented with electricity)

    or "children of Tesla" (ditto)

    etc.

    People are usually named by how they fit into society. Maybe these people do something or share something in common not directly related to electricity and are named for that. In a sci-fi story, they probably would gravitate toward jobs that use their talents. So maybe they would acquire along the way a derogatory name like "arcers", an individual being called an "arc", (pronounced and/or spelled arckers or arck).

    The Fulgastri. 

    If you can't devise your own name, then you don't possess the bare minimum amount of creativity and imagination required to write a story to begin with.
