where im from shrimp are shrimp, no names other, i have heard of prawns and it is commen sense to me, But if you go to a seafood resturante or a Store, a shrimp coctail is known as that exactly not a prawn coctail.

Well here shrimp are also called shrimp. Its confusing. I have never heard the word "prawn" until I got on this site.
