The scientific binomial name Trabala vishnou (not "a word", but two words, the first representing the genus and the second representing the species) has the following etymological derivations:
vishnou is taken from the name of a Hindu god.
Trabala might be derived from the Spanish "trabar" which means "interlocking" or "lock together", but I do not know for certain that this is the case. One should refer to the originial species description to see why the species name is given as it is. Spanish (as with other west European languages) is primarily derived from ancient Greek and Latin, so there may well be an older derivation meaning to be found, given enough time. I could not find anything in Latin searches, so try ancient Greek.
