Larkspur is the name of a flower in the genus Delphinium and Consolida, made up of lark, in reference to the bird which comes from Proto-Germanic *laiwarikǭ (lark) which comes from an unknown origin; and spur, referring to a metal instrument worn at one’s heel for prodding a horse (though it could also refer to an appendage located at the foot of some birds) which ultimately derives from a PIE root word. In the language of flowers, larkspurs can symbolize airiness, levity and fickleness.
