I was bored so I looked them up. :-)

dynamic: dynamika
static: statik

Dynamic was easy, translate to German dynamik, then to Lower Sorbian.
Static doesn't seem to translate directly (a translation for statische
wasn't in the online dictionary I found, but statik was). Either way,
it's actually pretty close to English.

But the point stands; some synonyms for static tokens from around the world:

biz
bus
client /cliente
commercial / commercio
corp
corporate
corporativo
cust
ded
dedicated
emp / empresa
fija (South America)
fix
fixee (FR)
fixo (PT-BR)
fx (JP, often used with bflets)
sta / stat / static

and some for dynamics:

da
dhcp
dia
dial
dinamic (South America)
dip
du / dup 
dyn
dynamic / dynamicip
pool
res

And again, that doesn't even begin to address the mixins like resnets
and NATs and other weirdnesses that lie outside this simplistic
dichotomy.
