    Rez doesn't know what he's talking about.
    The name "wormwood" comes from the PLANT Artemisia absinthium used to make absinthe as the article says. The plant was called wormwood because it was as a cure for intestinal worms.

    Does it really "make the heart grow fonder"?

    the name Wormwood comes from the "original" making of absinth,
    let the worms eat the greenstuff, squeeze them and destill that stuff and you'll see the other side.

    just fermented alcohol wuz not the source of the tales
