Anemone (pr. a-nem-o-nee; Forvo) is the name of a genus of flowering plants, also known as the windflower, apparently because it opens up when the wind blows. It’s made up of Ancient Greek anemos (wind) via PIE *h₂enh₁- (to breathe) combined with the feminine patronymic suffix -ṓnē, so the name essentially means “daughter of the wind”.
