The name “flamingo” comes from Portuguese or Spanish flamengo, “flame-colored”, in turn coming from Provençal flamenc from flama “flame” and Germanic-like suffix -ing, with a possible influence of the Spanish ethnonym flamenco “Fleming” or “Flemish”. The generic name Phoenicopterus (from Greek: φοινικόπτερος phoinikopteros), literally means “blood red-feathered” has a similar etymology to the common name; other genera include Phoeniconaias, which means “crimson/red water nymph (or naiad)”, and Phoenicoparrus, which means “crimson/red bird (though, an unknown bird of omen)”.

Flamingo also inspired architecture, music, and other artwork. For example, one of the hotels in Las Vegas known as the Flamingo, and the band and the album was named after animals.
