The Latin name Taraxacum originates in medieval Persian writings on pharmacy. In English it’s called dandelion and it is a corruption of the French “dent de lion” meaning "lion's tooth", referring to the coarsely toothed leaves.
In Greek, its seed (and most often the plant itself) is called a “kleftis” meaning "thief" because it is very difficult to catch once airborne.

beautiful photo - I also love to take photos of dandelions. They are plenty for good reason - they have medicinal properties - nature provides what we need
