The name Otariidae is a scientific name. It is Latin (the language of taxonomic categories), and the -idae ending indicates that it is the name of a family.

The Otariidae are a family of mammals commonly known as sea lions or fur seals. The Latin refers to the fact that these animals have external ears.
