What's some of the worst registered names for orchids you've come across?
Here's one I came across today when I was looking for a Colorkuli-
Paph Mishtawayawininiwak (hirsutissimum x moquettianum)
does this translate to something meaningful?

Just to add a further bit of information, Dr. W W Wilson, an important personage in Paph hybridizing named a whole series of his crosses in honor of Native American tribes, so it was not just to be funny.

I do recall a couple of others with Indian names, that's great, now we know where they're coming from! It wasn't meant to be funny on my part of asking. One has to admit this is a difficult word to say & write on plant tags.
