Sorry, no etymologies found.
The rufous-bellied niltava (_Niltava sundara_) or fairy blue-chat, as Jerdon calls it, is the kind of bird one would expect to find in fairyland.
They closely resemble nests of _Niltava macrigoriae_ from Darjeeling.
The eggs sent by Mr. Gammie very much recall the eggs of _Niltava_ and others of the Flycatchers.
