Nomenclature, refers to the principles, procedures and terms related to naming. The word is derived from the Latin nomenclatura - to call by name, or list by name and the syllables nomen- name + calare - to call.

The business of naming our experiences and the objects around us falls into many subject areas. Onomastics or onomatology is the study of proper names of all kinds and the origins of names. Toponymy or toponomastics is the study of place names. Anthroponymy is the study of human nomenclature which includes anthroponomastics as the study of personal names, proper names, given names, nicknames and so-on.

A common name (also known as a vernacular name) is a name in general use within a community and it is often contrasted with a scientific name. The word nomenclature is most frequently used in reference to biological nomenclature, the system of naming organisms. The species to which an organism belongs is indicated by two Latinized words, the genus name and and the species name (known technically as the specific epithets). This system, called the Linnaean system of binomial nomenclature, was established in the 1750s by Carolus Linnaeus and is referred to as the Linnaean system of binomial (two-name) nomenclature.

There are a number of disciplines related to nomenclature but which differ in important ways. Chief among these are: etymology, the study of word origins; taxonomy the practice and science of classification; and identification the actual process of assigning a name to an individual organism.

The rules of nomenclature vary somewhat according to the discipline involved:
