#Omens&Symbols . . . The Orchid




Orchid comes from the Greek “orkhis,” which means testicle and associated
with male virility and sexuality. One type of Orchid is the Paphiopedilum.
The name is derived from the word “Paphos” which is the name of the
temple where the Greek Goddess of Love, Aphrodite, was worshiped.
