Jack -
This wikipedia page describes the scale, and assuming it's accurate, you'd perhaps prefer "freygish".

The page claims that "some versions" of "Hava Nagila" and "Miserlou" use the scale, for what it's worth.

I think some modern Western schools of musical theory tend to describe scales by reference to the Aeolian etc set of modes and then adding further qualifications, which is where "Phrygian Dominant" comes from.
