I'm always amused when the Genus name is a Latin word for the animal and the Species name is the Greek name for the animal. The binomial nomenclature for the hoopoe is "Upupa epops." Here is a Hungarian stamp (SC 3227) that shows the bird and gives the scientific name, above which is the Hungarian name of the bird. My Hungarian etymologies are not so good, but I believe the first part of the name "Bubosbanka" - "Bubos" - is from the same root as the Greek and Latin word.
