  Etymology of generic noun  
Bodianus after Bodiano or Pudiano, from the Portuguese pudor, meaning modesty (Jordan & Evermann, 1896).
  Etymology of specific epithet  
Name formed from the Latin adjective albus meaning white, and Latin noun taenia for fillet or ribbon, apparently referring to un large ruban nacre (= broad pearly ribbon) extending from below the eye to the membranous lobe of the opercle mentioned in the original description. This pearly ribbon refers to the white expanse below the dark cephalic stripe intersecting the eye ventrally in adults of moderate size (Ref. 75973).
