EtymologyEtymology (genus): Generic name is a combination of two Latinized Greek words: Coluber — type genus of Colubridae family (to which a new species is referred) and Elaps — type genus of Elapidae family, with a number of which members a new species has strong affinity. Grammatical genus masculine (genus masculinum).

Etymology. Species name nguyenvansangi is given after the name of a famous zoologist and outstanding expert in the field of study squamate reptiles of Vietnam, Dr. Nguyen Van Sang (IEBR, Hanoi), who collected the holotype and made many new country records for Vietnamese herpetofauna as well as described many new species.
