Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Charles Davis: "Whole number" plantea un problemilla, ya que incluye el 0, mientras que "natural" no (en teoría de números) o sí (en teoría de conjuntos e informática). Pero en español, que yo sepa, esta posible diferencia entre "whole" y "natural" no puede reflejarse.
