What phobia is the fear of lightning?

Most sources cite 3 or 4 possible answers, however, almost all sources claim these to be the fear of 'thunder and lightning' Astraphobia Brontophobia Ceraunophobia Keraunophobia The most likely way these are broken down, are with Brontophobia being the fear of thunder bronto is the latin prefix for thunder, Cerauno/Kerauno-phobia being the fear of thunder AND lightning - since Cerauno/Kerauno are used as latin words for thunder *and* lightning (or either, but it can be both). This leaves Astraphobia as the specific fear of lightning alone. However, the 3-4 words are used interchangably for fear of thunder and/or lightning, so you'll probably find you'd need to specifically state which you mean, no matter which of the words you use.
