BLOODY HELL!!! Alex! Don't you know YOUR OWN language? Can anyone be so dumb? Why don't you consult an English dictionary before you start correcting people who know what they're talking about? _Anguis fragilis_ (the basic meaning of the word and the first one given by yourself below) is the Latin name of the BLINDWORM, also known as a SLOWWORM, a legless lizard, not a real snake.
As for the toponyms I questioned, a reference to a published source will be enough.
