Phylogenetic trees - with all their scientific names?

By now, I'm quite familiar with the scientific names for most animal classes and orders. I think that scientific names are still highly appropriate for classes or orders - people are more consistent with each other when they say "Squamata" instead of "snakes, lizards, and possibly some other extinct groups". But, when it gets down to genus and species levels, it's a complete mess, especially for generalists like myself.

So, is there a way to make them more readable? (I know that this is one case where a second monitor would help, but there might be cheaper ways to do this). The tree at http://www.flickr.com/photos/grrlscientist/3118835640/sizes/l/in/photostream/ is the one that I definitely have in mind.
