The Common Names Committee of the Entomological Society of Canada maintains and periodically updates a list of common names of insects. The list is available online as a searchable database, and is also downloadable as an Excel file. In addition, there is an online form for the submission of a proposal for a new common name. The site includes recommendations for how to come up with a new common name.
