Carnations

Carnations were known as “Jove’s flower” in ancient Rome, after the greatest of their gods. Some scholars continue the Mediterranean connection and say the name “carnation” originated as either “coronation” or “corone” (a flower garland) due to its use in Greek ceremonial crowns.Others debate different sources of the name “carnation.” Because of its fleshy color, some think that the name comes from the Latin carno or carnis, meaning flesh. From there, others have suggested that its religious associations mean the name comes from the Latin incarnatio, referring to the incarnation of God in the flesh. In all cases, carnations certainly bear a regal name.
