agrimony

EnglishEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Middle English egremoyne, from a conflation of Old English agrimonia and Middle French agremoine (from Old French agremoine, variant of aegremone), both from Late Latin agrimōnia, metathesized from Latin argemōnia (a kind of poppy) (probably by association with ager, agri- (field)), from Ancient Greek ἀργεμώνη (argemṓnē, Papaver argemone, wild-rose), probably from ἄργεμον (árgemon, leucoma), from ἀργός (argós, white).
