I love etymology , names of plants are particularly  interesting from this point of view.  like this one:

Hypericum: has origin in Greek language , where hyper means above and eikon picture, during St John’s day the plant was hanged over an icon to protect the house against evil forces.

Perforatum: has origin in Latin- if the leaves are held against the sun, there are seen little perforations which are actually oil glands .Notice the leaves at the first picture above!
