which little piggy?

Why do our fingers have individual names, but not our toes, except for the big toe and the pinky toe? Or do they, and I just not know them?

I think I broke my toe this evening, and when my friend asked which one, I could only describe it as either "the one next to the pinky toe" or "the ring finger toe"

I could have gotten all science-y on them and said "the fourth tarsal phlange", but I was more in the mood to go "owie...hurts!"
