The word tulip, first mentioned in western Europe in or around 1554 first appeared in English as tulipa or tulipant, from Ottoman Turkish tülbend. This name being applied because of a perceived resemblance of the shape of a tulip flower to that of a turban. This may have been due to a translation error in early times, when it was fashionable in the Ottoman Empire to wear tulips on turbans. The translator possibly confused the flower for the turban.
