Actually, the prefix "Ana" in Greek maps to "Re" in english. Like engineering and re-engineering.

Taxonomy comes from Taxis (Order) and Nomos (Rule), i.e Rules of order

By liberty of "Poetic Authorisation", a more likely alternative would be: Taxanomy

Taxis for "order" and Anomy for "Lack of Rule".

Not an official word, to my knowledge, but makes sense, in modern Greek as well.
