This is interesting. Could it really be unrelated to all the known languages? That would be very impressive.

A list of names seems like rather meagre evidence. It probably suffices for ruling out other languages known from that time period, but of other possible affiliations (eg. a sister language to Sumerian, or a lost branch of Kartvelian languages?) it would be harder to say anything about.
