names




Just a quick question is it
a) ethical
b) sensible
to name a dinosaur after a person who gives money to support an expedition? Or just plain gives money? I know in some fields (like astronomy) there is the Star Registry which for a fee one can name a star after anyone or anything they like. Is this a grey area- or can it/ has it been done in paleontology?
