Of course, lots of buyers don't insist on names. Some just buy plants with attractive flowers; others like you & me buy them with the intention of trying to find the names.
What I find even more vexing is when the vendors are careless about the names. For example, a few years ago, a vendor at my local OS was selling an orchid called Dend. Thai Jeng. There "ain't no sech animal" as I discovered (confirmed for me by our own MacJulie aka Piper), and I can't say for sure what it may have been. (Possibly Thai Gem or Thai Jewel, but who can say for sure?)
