The whole bird name thing has been done a few times on here already ... The latin binomial is there for accuracy ...

I agree some of those proposed new names do look quite fun (not that we have to change them). Also a handful of specific examples (eg the quoted McCown's Longspur) could be renamed for reasons given.

I looked up Montezuma. During the Flower Wars tried to get as many people for human sacrifice as he could (wikipedia).
