description Names are fascinating, for they provide insight into minds and cultures long dead. The bisexual hero/ heroine of this essay enjoys several names. From science, we have Senecio jacobaea L. The generic Senecio is from a resemblance to an old man, cf. "the senile one" or "the senator." The "L." tells us that this species was named by Linnaeus, the great classifier himself. He commemorated another Scandinavian botanist in the specific jacobaea.
