In the paper is discussed as many as 468 Cretan river names, which may derive from the Modern Greek appellatives denoting plants. Floristic names represent 10% of all the modern hydronyms of the island (4666 names). As to the structure of the analyzed floristic names we can distinguish 294 simple names (62,9%), 160 composed names (34,1%) and 14 elliptical names (3%). It is worth emphasizing that 25 floristic river names appeared as early as in the Venetian times (1204–1669). Finally, an exhaustive list of the Modern Greek plant names, which became a basis of deriving numerous Cretan hydronyms, is presented.
