From Wikipedia :

The panther chameleon was first described by French naturalist Georges Cuvier in 1829.[3] Its generic name (Furcifer) is derived from the Latin root furci meaning "forked" and refers to the shape of the animal's feet.[4] The specific name pardalis refers to the animals' markings, as it is Latin for "leopard" or "spotted like a panther".[5] The English word chameleon (also chamaeleon) derives from Latin chamaeleō, a borrowing of the Ancient Greek χαμαιλέων (khamailéōn), a compound of χαμαί (khamaí) "on the ground" and λέων (léōn) "lion". The Greek word is a calque translating the Akkadian nēš qaqqari, "ground lion".[6] This lends to the common English name of "panther chameleon".
