Origin of daffodil

Variant of Middle English affodill, from Medieval Latin affodillus, from Latin asphodelus, from Ancient Greek ἀσφόδελος (asphodelos), of unknown origin. The initial d- is perhaps from merging of the article in Dutch de affodil, the Netherlands being a source for bulbs. (Compare newt and nickname)
