Carnations are also commonly referred to by their scientific name, “Dianthus“, the name given by the Greek botanist Theopharastus. Carnations got the name Dianthus from two Greek Words – “dios”, referring to the god Zeus, and “anthos”, meaning flower. Carnations are thus known as the “The Flowers of God“.
