Daphne is a nymph from Greek mythology, who was turned into a laurel tree by her father Peneus as she fled the unwanted advances of the god Apollo, who was desperately in love with her. According to the myth, Apollo had Daphne the laurel tree cut down so he could make a crown for himself out of her branches. That Apollo sure did know how to charm a lady!
