Beilfuss Name Meaning

German: probably from the name of the aromatic plant Beifuss ‘mugwort’ (Artemisia vulgaris), Middle High German biboz, but by the 13th century reinterpreted as bivot ‘for the foot’, with reference to the common belief that strapped to the legs the plant would ward off fatigue on a journey. The excrescent -l- is evidence of a further reinterpretation, as Beilfuss ‘axe foot’, suggestive of a deformity of the foot such as club foot.
