G.Maurice,they are all GREEK ,and all have names.
11-gon [is not undecagon ]
it is one +ten-gon= 'ena+deka-gon='endecagon=hendecagon(taking into
account the DASEA ['] i.e. (accentuation)spirit.

It is much simpler to just say 11-gon for an
&gt;11 sided figure. Or a 50-gon for a fifty sided figure.

&gt;&gt;Hello All,
&gt;&gt;I have never posted here before, and stumbled across this site while
&gt;&gt;searching for this question: "Why doesn't an 11-gon have an actually
&gt;&gt;name like "decagon"?" Maybe you can help. It would be greatly
&gt;&gt;appreciated. Thanks
