The word "pineapple" in English was first recorded to describe the reproductive organsof conifer trees (now termed pine cones). When European explorers encountered this tropical fruit in the Americas, they called them "pineapples" (first referenced in 1664, for resemblance to pine cones).

In the scientific binomial Ananas comosus, ananas, the original name of the fruit, comes from the Tupiword nanas, meaning "excellent fruit",as recorded by André Thevet in 1555, and comosus, "tufted", refers to the stem of the fruit. Other members of the genus Ananas are often called pine, as well, in other languages.

In Sanskrit it is called Bahunetra; meaning having multiple eyes.
