Since it's non-binomial, I intend to ignore it.

* which of these would be the noun (genus)? Google translate apparently 
doesn't like "anglo-saxon," and gives

album-rum Protestantium

so if Protestant is the noun,

Protestantium album-rum

...would be what the google automatic nomenclator gives as the name of 
the WASP. Enough to drive a protestantor to drink.

Wishing everyone a rejuvenating and healthful solsticial season - and 
hoping 2014 can be dominated, at all levels of enterprise, by actions 
based on conclusions lovingly reasoned out from first principles,
