I believe that the domestic goose derives from the Greylag Goose. As for the scientific name it could be either Anser anser or Anser anser domesticus but it's all rather confusing.

Domestic goose

I agree with everything you say Chris. I would think Anser anser domesticus would be the most appropriate term.
