Why do scientists use scientific names instead of common names?
Scientific names made up of two parts, the first is a Genus classification and the second is a Species classification. Using scientific names or scientific taxonomy makes it easy to recognize shared physical characteristics. For example the Felis Catus (domestic cat) shares physical characteristics with the Felis Chaus (jungle cat).

What animal has one scientific name and two common names?
Except possibly for obsolete scientific names due to reclassifications, every animal has just one scientific name -- such is the virtue of scientific names. Many animals are called by different names in different parts of the world and so have many common names. In fact, only the rarest , most narrowly distributed animals have only one common name.
