Short for Nepenthe, "that which chases away sorrow." Also a magical potion that cures sorrow through forgetfulness (not that I approve of that), referenced in the Odyssey.

Also refers to Nepenthes, a genus of carnivorous plant, particularly Nepenthes Miribilis, the common swamp pitcher plant. Mirabilis means wonderful.

So, um... wonderful potion of forgetfulness... that eats bugs...

Um... yeah.
