====Name origin====
Nidoran♀ may be derived from ''needle''. It may also come from ''{{wp|cnidocyte}}'', a type of venomous cell responsible for the stings delivered by stinging animals, most notably {{wp|jellyfish}}. Alternatively, it may be based on 二 ''ni'' (two) or 二度 ''nido'' (two times/two degrees) referring to the two distinct evolutionary lines with similar names and traits. Also, the Japanese word ''ran'' is translated as ''orchid'' in English. {{wp|Orchid}}s are flowers that can be purple or blue, these being the same colors as the male and female evolutionary forms of Nidoran, respectively. The ''♀'' is an indication of its female gender.

Nidoran♀ may be derived from ''needle'' with ♀ as an indication of its female gender. It may also involve 二度 ''nido'' (twice).
