When Mr. Ray sings his "Let's Name the Species" song, he isn't actually naming species. Porifera, Coelenterata, Ctenophora, Bryozoa, Arthropoda, Echinodermata, and Chordata are all phyla.

Phyla and classes are definitely not the same as species, although it is revealed, in the DVD, that Mr. Ray isn't an actual scientist, more that he just picks things up. In that case, it could very well be that he mistook the one for the other, not knowing that he was passing on incorrect information.
The first names of "Production Babies" are listed towards the end of the credits.
