I use a mix of both -- although if a pet store posts ONLY latin names, that usually annoys me -- because half the time I don't know what the common name is... it's nice when they post both

I KNOW the scientific names for some animals, but I still use the common name most times when I'm talking about them... latin names tend to be long, and rather hard to pronounce... hehe

So yup, you're a nerd *grins*
