pink rhododendron flowers

Some lovely rhododendron bushes are blooming outside and it got me wondering about the name and whether or was related to the name Rhoda so after a look on Wikipedia I found that rhodon is the ancient Greek word for rose, which is also the meaning of Rhoda, but not related to how the city and island of Rhodes got its name (contrary to popular belief) because that has its roots in mythology, according to Discover-Rhrodes.com.

Good day for a wiki spiral.
