When I was a kid and would read the Babysitters' Club over and over again, this was in one of the books. The word took around 5 goes to get, but I've been able to spell and say it since. I just love the way the word sounds. Chris an' the mum - it's made for some really good cryptic crossword clues as well.

Chrysos: gold
anthos: flower

While looking up the etymology, the word anthos reminded me of anthology. On looking this up, it turns out that anthology means 'flower pressings'.
