The 'nomenclature' tag is used 33 times, 'naming' is used 5. I consider these tags to be virtually synonymous and suggest we merge 'naming' into 'nomenclature', however in the interests of balance, here are some pros and cons:
- The 'naming' tag is virtually redundant as all but one question currently using the tag concern chemical or pharmaceutical systematic nomenclature.
Not everyone is familiar with the word 'nomenclature'.
There are possible questions of molecular etymology that sit apart from systematic nomenclature schemes, which may defend the relevance of a seperate 'naming' tag. A hypothetical question would be something like 'why is theobromine called theobromine if it doesn't have a bromine atom in it?' or 'why is diethyl ether called 'sweet oil of vitriol' in my 17th century alchymical grimoire?'.
