    Hello. I know no latin at all but participate in a few geeky events where latin-named things always go down well. I've made a wine that is absolutely disgusting and "red disease" seems an appropriate name but is a little uninspiring in English. A bit of snooping about the internet has come up with the splendid "morbus" and "rubicundus" in latin. Would "Morbus Rubicundus" be grammatically appropriate or are there some mysterious latin forms that would be used?

    'morbus rubrus' would also do. Or you could simply go for 'rubella', which is a form of measles.

    I quite like "rubrus".
