Short Greek names for Owl and Thunder? My pleasure to be of service.
A cool Greek name for thunder is *Bronte* (as in the infamous Bronte trio).
Koukoubagia is a rather recent onomatopoeic rendition of owl. Shorter versions from classical Greek include *Glaux* (or *Glaukos*)and *Skops* (or *Skops*).
So how do "Bronte Glaux" or "Bronte Scops* resonate to your ears?
If you are not content, how about using "Athena" or "Athene" for owl? After all, the owl was the Goddess Athena's pet symbol for wisdom. And *everyone* would love a name like *Athene Bronte* :)
