  • Etymology: "from the Greek parthenos (girl or virgin), probably a reference to the white ray florets in these plants; or derived from partheniki, the Greek name for a plant latinised as parthenice by the Roman poet Gaius Valerius Catullus (c. 84-54 BC); this plant is now Tanacetus parthenium (L.) Bernh. or Feverfew."
