For what it's worse, even though I've not seen any suggested Latin
alphabets for future adoption, a possible future alphabet would spell
this natively as follows (I'm judging by most used Qazaq Latin alphabet,
and close cultural ties with Qazaqstan):
Qırğız tili

Of course that could always be added when the time comes...

My 2 cents.
