from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. The plant fumitory, Fumaria officinalis.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Fumitory -- _fume-terre_, earth-smoke -- is not very satisfactorily explained, though many explanations have been given; but that the name was an ancient one we know from the interesting Stockholm manuscript of the eleventh century published by Mr.J. Pettigrew, and of which a few lines are worth quoting.
Jungfrau exists, with Jotunheim and the Jura exists, with Jabron and Jambo, Jogkarta exists, with earth-swirls and earth-smoke exists with water masses, landmasses, earthquakes exists, with Judenburg, Johannesburg and the Jerusalem of Jerusalems atombombs exist
