(Seh-lahn-deen), its Greek for "swallow," I think its a pretty and Romantic name.

Celandine comes from the Greek chelidon, which means "a swallow [type of bird]". It refers to three different species of flowering plants: Chelidonium majus commonly known as tetterwort, Stylophorum diphyllum or wood-poppy, celandine poppy or poppywort, and Ranunculus ficaria. The latter gets its name from medieval times, when it was said that the flower blooms when the swallows return in the spring, and the flowers die when the swallows migrate in the fall.
