Etymology of Star Anise.:
The Chinese names of star anise, Cantonese bat gok and Mandarin ba jiao both mean "eight corners, octogon" and allude to the eight-pointed shape of star anise fruits ("eight corner spice"). In Chinese herbal medicine, star anise is known as ba jiao hui xiang "eight-cornered fragrant fennel".
English badian anise and related names in other European tongues (Spanish badian, Latvian badjans and Russian badyan) are derived from the Persian name of star anise, badiyan. In English, and probably in other languages also,"badian" sounds archaic and obsolete; it is found only in historical recipes, not in contemporary cookbooks.
Since its extreme olfactoric similarity to anise, star anise is named after anise in many European countries. Quite often, a name for star anise if formed by combining the local name for anise with an epithet referring to the Asian origin or the characteristic star-like shape, e.g., Turkish in anason and French anis de la Chine "China-Anise" and Estonian t?htaniis, Polish any? gwiazdkowaty and Italian anice stellato, all meaning starlike anise. In the opposite way, European anise is known as hat hoi [ht hi] "grain-shaped star anise" in Vietnam.
The genus name Illicium is derived from Latin illicere "allure", probably because of the sweet and attractive fragrance.
