Derivation of the botanical name:
Daucus, the Latin name for carrot. Galen (Claudius Galenus of Pergamum (131 - 201 CE)), called it Daucus to distinguish the Carrot from the Parsnip.
carota; the name Carota for the garden Carrot is found first in the Roman writings of Athenaeus, of Naucratis in Egypt, Greek rhetorician and grammarian (2nd and beginning of the 3rd century CE.), and in a book on cookery by Apicius Czclius in 230 CE.
Queen Anne's lace, earned its common name from a legend that tells of Queen Anne of England (1655-1714) pricking her finger—drawing a drop of blood—while sewing lace.
