The scientific naming system which is used worldwide today was first devised by the Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus in 1737.

Full names are devised starting with the kingdom and extending downward through the phylum, subphylum, order, class, family, genus and species. The two-part name, or binomial name, contains the genus and species of organism and used to avoid the confusion, which may arise with the common names.
