I would like to express the minority opinion. There is nothing wrong with Latin. Common names are just what is commonly used, and they come into and go out of fashion. But Latin is more stable, not permanent but more stable. I use for example the “fir variety of Heterobasidion etc and if we change the Genus I’ll then change the Latin.
