Unless I'm wrong I think we should stick to one name, especially with all the hybrids that pop up these days. One name per hybrid will certainly make things easier.

The worst thing one can do is give them (unofficial) Latin names for that is certainly going to create a lot of confusion.
Imo a fish like this should be called something like Synodontis hybrid "valentine". I know this matter has been discussed before, but I am unaware of any results.
synos don't hybidise unless man interferes, even when multiple species are kept together.
The only possible exception (which has yet to be proven) might be multipunctatus & grandiops as they are so similar, when in the close confines of an aquarium.
