Etymological Meaning of the Lilac Flower

In taxonomy, lilacs have their own genera called Syringa. So, for example, the common lilac is known asSyringa vulgaris. The English word lilac is stolen from the French and Spanish word lilac. Arab and Persian also has a remarkably similar word – lilak. The granddaddy of most European and Asian languages, Sanskrit, had a similar word nilah which means “dark blue” as a color and not necessarily as a flower. All of the other words for lilac are thought to have derived from nilah.
