I'm knowledgeable about its origin in D&D, but the word "halfling" always seems like a pejorative used by by bigger people rather than an acceptable name for the race. I think mostly this comes from its descriptive nature (only dragonborn are similar, and, frankly, I don't like that name either). Are there better terms for halflings used in different campaign settings? I remember the Kender of Dragonlance, but they are technically not the same race. I'm just curious about what insights other people have.
