   Alyssum:   Greek plant name

   Hormathophylla:   hormathos = string, phyllon = leaf
 

The Index Synonymique de la Flore de France (ISFF) mentions also Alyssum serpyllifolium subsp. serpyllifolium as synonyme, but I'm not sure about that, because there are also images in the web, which show a yellow flowered Alyssum under that name.
