: Please don't "BAN" common names, it would be disadvantageous to us common folk, LOL.

You overestimate my powers - LOL! - I am just suggesting that there is a lot to be said for learning and using scientific names.

: AND:

: Just one other thing regarding Cobra pronunciation.

: I like Nah Jah beter than Nah Yah, even though it doesn't conform to the latin, greek or place of origin; easier to say and sounds better,

There is no accounting for taste ;-)

: double LOL. Of course just my opinion and heck, just spelling the scientific names is difficult enough, Hee, Hee!!!

What does it matter, anyway - it's a dead language, there are no audio tapes of Cesar in full flow, so pronounce it the way you feel best, and that gets understood by the people you talk to. ;-)

Cheers,

Wolfgang
