Ancient Greek has been for centuries the language of science and has
contributed many words to the scientific language of many modern languages,
which are still in use today.  And similarly to using latin there will be
no doubt about which preference is given (European culture). ;-)


PS: Seriously, choosing Latin rather than English has no advantage besides
adding an elitarian touch on top of the Europe-centricity.
