Say it: orchid.
Now, say it with your eyes closed: orchid.
Listen to that word. To me, it’s a strange one.
I see from the dictionary that orchid comes from the Greek, órkhis, which in its original context apparently referred to a particular plant that had an underground tuber with a specific double-globular shape, so the word órkhis was a natural to refer to this shape from the animal-world—órkhis meaning testicle.
WikiPee agrees with my dictionary on this….
This shape concept-name may well be a common one to apply to the plant world, as aguacate, Mexican Spanish for avocado, has the same meaning as órkhis in Nahuatl (aguacate is a corruption of ahuacatl).
Or it’s a guy thing*.
* Polyorchidism is when the individual has more than two testes. Egad. (Whereever did this little wander in linguistics and natural history come from? Mystery to me; it sure wasn’t planned!)
