    If I learned anything from studying Latin it is pronounced (Lyn-nay-us). And I have never heard of a botanist with this name, so no, I do not.

    I have a pretty good understanding of Latin; I would say Lin-nay-us. I think of Carl Linnaeus.

    It's lih-NAY-us. I think of Carl Linneaus too, but I like the association.

    Lin-nay-us. I didn't think of the botanist, but I don't think its a bad association at all.

    In high school I'd taken the basic biology course, and then the AP biology class. Five years and an English degree later Linnaeus wasn't my first thought.
