I pick my jaw up off the floor.
Why don't you and others concerned work on one standard, specific nomenclature which is far from standardized. When you have that 'dicked' then you can try to tackle common names.
It seems you are being very short sighted in that english and the US is the only language and country you have to deal with. The example I'm famaliar with is Geochelone sulcata, the Spurred tortoise which is sometimes called the Spurthighed tortoise and about 10 other regional names in its native land of north africa. To try and standardize common names is not only arrogant but it is ludicrous. I hope you see the point. Once again, I'm obviously not the one with blinders on.
