Translingual[edit]

Etymology[edit]

New Latin, from Ancient Greek "horned faces"[script?]. One of the first named genera was Ceratops itself, which lent its name to the group, although it is considered a nomen dubium today as it has no distinguishing characteristics that are not also found in other ceratopsians.
