Chemical nomenclature, replete as it is with compounds with complex names,
is a repository for some very peculiar and sometimes startling names. A
browse through the /Physical Constants of Organic Compounds/ in the /CRC
Handbook of Chemistry and Physics/ (a fundamental resource) will reveal not
just the whimsical work of chemists, but the sometimes peculiar compound
names that occur as the consequence of simple juxtaposition. Some names
derive legitimately from their chemical makeup, from the geographic region
where they may be found, the plant or animal species from which they are
isolated or the name of the discoverer.

Some are given intentionally unusual trivial names based on their
structure, a notable property or at the whim of those who first isolate
them. However, many trivial names predate formal naming conventions.
Trivial names can also be ambiguous or carry different meanings in
different industries, geographic regions and languages.

Godly noted that "Trivial names having the status of INN or ISO are
carefully tailor-made for their field of use and are internationally
accepted".^[1] In his preface to /Chemical Nomenclature/, Thurlow wrote
that "Chemical names do not have to be deadly serious".^[2] A website in
existence since 1997^[3] and maintained at the University of Bristol lists
a selection of "molecules with silly or unusual names" strictly for
entertainment. These so-called silly or funny trivial names (of course
depending on culture) can also serve an educational purpose. In an article
in the /Journal of Chemical Education/
