Cornflower is the name of a flower (also known as bachelor’s button) so named because it grew in cornfields. It’s made up of corn (a grain or seed of a cereal crop such as oats, wheat, and barley) which comes from Proto-Germanic *kurną (corn, grain, cereal) derived from a PIE root word meaning “grain”; and flower. Cornflower blue is also a color of a bright blue with a tint of purple.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
