That's not how I heard the story end.  The fox just dumped out the contents
of the jar on the floor of the Heron (a stork in the version I know), ate
the fish and left saying "be careful of the lessons you're trying to teach."

More to the point, does it matter?  Can't there be a one-to-one transform
between two element names?  Where the non-English form is succinct, the
English form might be a-hyphenated-list-of-words.  Not a huge problem.
