Lingot etymology

Never mind the etymology - What is one to do with over 4000 lingots? :-)

Is there a way to give more than 1 lingot? I would've give them to someone helpful, there are many helpful post in the word's discussions, someone willing to have a language exchange practice with me or someone funny.

If not just wait till DL adds new bought-able features, I would
