Luca Ghini (Casalfiumanese 1490 – Bologna, May 4, 1556) was an Italian physician and botanist, notable as the creator of the first recorded herbarium, as well as the first botanical garden in Europe. Wikipedia


Pisa, home town to Luca Ghini’s first botanical garden, is where the current maintainer of this software, Mario Frasca, completed his computer science studies.

After adopting this software as Bauble, and having long been struggling in Spanish speaking Latin America getting the name correctly pronounced, and even worse having to correct every time the automatic translation made it become a “bagatella”, “babiole”, or even “chuchería”, the Italian speaking maintainer thought it was high time to choose something else, meaningless to translating software, and more clearly related to botany.
