The flower actually gets it's name from a comparison to the passion of Christ.
In 1577, a Spanish Doctor named Nicolas Monardes brought the flower to Europe from Peru. To him, it's ten petals and sepals represented the ten disciples at the crucifiction, and he saw in it the crown of thorns, the whipping post, and the three nails used to crucify Jesus.
