- Aug 4, 2008I'm on the fly today, so please excuse some short comments; I don't
mean to come across as abrupt.
"Lepus" is Latin for "hare"; leporis is indeed the genitive singular.
The name might in fact be Latin, or might be a coincidence of spelling.
Re: the IGI: never take it as gospel. Some people submit shoddy
work, eg you find your 3 x great-grandmother's birthdate! Hooray!
Being a good researcher, you manage to track down the submitter and
ask for the source of the birthdate, and alas, they reply "oh, I took
the marriage date and subtracted 16 years". Really.
Gotta run; welcome to the new member!
