Common Names are pretty much useless in regards to ameivas(minus green ameiva-which is Ameiva ameiva)

there's some 25 species of ameivas but the whole group needs more work on their taxonomy.

The most common species in the "pet" trade are Ameiva ameiva, Ameiva chaitzami (which is what you pictured) Ameiva undulata and Ameiva festiva.
If you spend time googling images of different ameiva species you will notice the confusion with regards to what species is actually which.
