  Common name - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In science, a common name is any name by which a species or other concept is known that is not the official scientific name.
Names like sardine or deer can apply to dozens of different species worldwide, though those names are perfectly adequate in their original domains of use, (fishing and hunting), in localities where only one such species is known to exist or is likely to be caught.
Such official common names are chosen by a governing body and typically attempt to follow a set of guidelines set by that body.

 Name - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Naming is the process of assigning a particular word or phrase to a particular object or property.
Common names are also poorly suited to the precise usage needed by scientists, since by their nature common names evolve through linguistic processes.
A human name is an anthroponym; a toponym is a place name; hydronym is a name of a body of water; an ethnonym is name of an ethnic group.

 RFC 2972 (rfc2972) - Context and Goals for Common Name Resolution
Common names are not URIs (Uniform Resource Identifiers) in that they lack the syntactic structure imposed by URIs; furthermore, unlike URNs, there is no requirement of uniqueness or persistence of the association between a common name and a resource.
Common name "resolution" is a process of mapping from common names to Internet resources; a Common Name Resolution Protocol (CNRP) is a network protocol used in such a process.
Several other issues, while of importance to the deployment of common name resolution services, are outside of the resolution protocol itself and are not in the initial scope of the proposed effort.

 Compendium of Pesticide Common Names   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Systematic chemical names are rarely short and are not convenient for general use, and so standards bodies assign common names to the active ingredients of pesticides.
Data sheets for new ISO common names are normally added within 2–3 weeks after meetings of ISO Technical Committee 81, which is responsible for ISO 1750.
The inclusion of a pesticide name in this Compendium must not be interpreted as a recommendation for the use of the substance in agriculture or in any other field.

 Common Names
As someone brought up in a country where the botanical names of plants are always listed alongside their common names, even in children's reference books, it came as a big surprise to me when I got on the internet to find gardeners in the US using common names for the plants in their gardens.
And your common name might not be the common name used in another part of your own country.
Calling your local flowers by a common name is all very well, but when you're exchanging seeds you need to be a bit more specific.

Apple Safari and Konqueror Embedded fails to validate the Common Name of a SSL certificate.
SSL serves two main purposes; one is to ensure the authenticity of the server, which you are communicating with, the other is to provide encrypted communication.
The authenticity part is completely broken when the Common Name isn't verified, since the user can't know if he is communicating with the host in the address bar.
