A proposal for replacing decimal based names of geometrical figures by dozenal names of Greek derivation.

After Gauss, the number of edges of constructible regular polygons by ungraduated straight-edged rule and unfixed compass have prime factorisations of the form \(2^{n}\) times the zeroth or first powers of primes of the form \(2^{2^m}+1\).
