- cone:  Greek kōnos originally meant ‘pinecone’ – it was the pine-cone’s typical shape which suggested the application of the word to a conical geometrical figure. The word passed into English via Latin cōnus and French cône. Coniferous  was formed from Latin cōnifer, literally ‘cone-bearing’ (-ifer goes back to Latin ferre ‘carry’, a relative of English bear).
- cone (n.)
