End credits are a namelist shown at the end of a video work.

I am looking for an expression for it that is short enough for lyrics.

I wonder if index finalis ("final list") is accurate and understandable enough.

Edit: I found the Greek word catalogus can also mean a namelist.

    finalis is closer to bounded than to final, I suggest index auctorum

  • @John I need to emphasize the "final" meaning here, how about postremus or extremus? Commented Mar 2, 2023 at 5:34

If you want to emphasise the fact that these credits are at the end, as you mentioned in your comment, here are a few options:

  • index postrema should be used if there are several credits and you are talking about the last one,
  • index extrema/index finalis/index terminalis are quite close and should be used if the index marks the end of the show, if it is its extreme part, its limit.

I have a slight preference for index terminalis.
