I kind of like Wiedergangers.

It does sound mysterious (and fantasy) because I do not speak German and it’s certainly fresher than a very generic “zombie” term most of us know. Skyrim used “draugrs” for their own version of zombies and it felt fine for the theme game was set in. In Death Gathe the German term “mensch” has been used to describe “men with less affinity to magic” (so lesser men) and it was OK as well. To be completely honest I would rather take term from foreign language – or made up my own – to make it feel more unique over using something that’s English or universal. Term “uruk” from the Middle Earth is a good example.
