Opinions differ on the origin of dandelion's genus name, Taraxacum. Some believe that it derives from the Persian talkh chakok, "bitter herb." Others propose that it derives from the Greek taraxos, "disorder," and akos, "remedy." Still others believe it could be derived from the Greek taraxia, "eye disorder," and akeomai, "to cure," as the plant was traditionally used as a remedy for eyes. The common name dandelion derives from the French dent de lion, "tooth of the lion," in reference to the jagged shape of the leaves.
