Questions about mermaids...

If a mermaid were to have a scientific classification, how would I go about building the name so that it sounds half believable?

What sort of notes would a scientist keep about a mermaid beyond length, weight, etc?

It might help if I explain what I'm trying to do. You see, I've created an art piece that looks like a drawing or old photo of a mermaid in a vintage-looking notebook. I'm trying to figure out what sort of notes would be written around it and coming up blank. Any help would be appreciated.
