Kannada, Malayalam and Tamil names for Crotalaria heyneana Graham ex Wight & Arn.:
Crotalaria heyneana Graham ex Wight & Arn. is distributed within India, naturally in the states of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
In English, the name Heyne’s crotalaria (or Heyne’s rattlebox) – derived from the commemorative epithet heyneana, honouring Dr Benjamin Heyne FLS (1770, Döbra – 6 February 1819, Madras), a German botanist, naturalist, and surgeon who worked in British India as a botanist to Samalkot in the Madras Presidency under the British East India Company … about Dr Benjamin Heyne in Wikipedia.

On similar lines, can we coin commemorative names in Kannada, Malayalam and Tamil ?
The rattlebox – in these three languages are following : ಗೆಜ್ಜೆ ಗಿಡ gejje gida, കിലുകിലുപ്പ kilukiluppa, கிலுகிலுப்பை kilukiluppai
Here is my attempt for the three languages (merely made use of Google Translate):
ಹೇಯ್ನನ  ಗೆಜ್ಜೆ ಗಿಡ heyn-na gejje gida
ഹെയ്‌നിന്റെ കിലുകിലുപ്പ hey‌ninre kilukiluppa
ஹெய்ன்ந கிலுகிலுப்பை heyn-na kilukiluppai
If this does not sound good, it is okay to avoid giving name, or I am open to any other suggested name.

In my opinion it should be ಹೆಯ್ನೆನಾ ಗೆಜ್ಜೆ ಗಿಡ (Heyne na gejje  gida) derived from Heyne’s   crotalaria.   


Superb !
Thank you very much …for help with the transliterated name.
I will soon add it to the compilation.

The name Heyne is pronounced in different ways, Heyṉ ஹெய்ன், Hēyṉ ஹேய்ன், Haiṉi ஹைனி etc. and I am not sure of the correct way of writing it in Tamil.
Is it possible to coin a name based on its flower color (for e.g. blue crotalaria or Neela kilukiluppai நீல கிலுகிலுப்பை), habitat (e.g. wild/forest crotalaria or Kaattu kilukiluppai காட்டு கிலுகிலுப்பை) or other characteristics? Just a suggestion. I checked online for any existing documented Tamil names but couldn’t find any.

Thank you very much for the efforts taken for this Heyne’s crotalaria !!!
I too have found transliterating foreign word in our mother tongue almost always becomes challenging !!
To avoid any ambiguity, I will go with the fool-proof காட்டு கிலுகிலுப்பை kaattu kilukiluppai
