It should not be a problem if you use the language of the people from the area where the Australian phenotype was taken. I think that it should be the procedure for selection of common names for any future splits in Australia.

Why not use 'Barri-enna'? Because it is the Sydney area name for it. There are many other suitable indigenous names such as Djanna (help me Denise Goodfellow did I get it right?).

A nice thought to use an indigenous name but it may be a Pandora's box not worth opening.
