Spanish flu wasn't from Spain

WHO warns on bird flu pandemic risk - Yahoo! News

Now that it looks like the Bird Flu could actually break out... it needs a more formal name. H5N1 sounds like a chess move.

And really it's obvious:

Turkey Flu

It keeps the bird moniker, and the location moniker.
Even if it doesn't come from turkeys, and doesn't break out from Turkey, we need this name.
