Albtraum means nightmare in German but seems to translate literally to something like elf dream. Delightful

Do other languages do the whole let’s have a different name for a group of each type of animal thing? And if so, is there any consistency across languages or does each have its own unique set of terms? Who picked these names? How did this odd convention get started? Are there any linguists on the board cause I’ve got a lot of questions
