Parenthetically, many of the names for body parts are mind-numbingly mundane. They translate from Latin into things like “elevator of the upper eyelid” [levator palpebrae superioris] and “flexor of the small finger” [flexor digiti minimi]. The early guys working on this stuff had no benefit of embalming fluid or refrigerators, and they often dug up rotting corpses just to study them. Just imagine the stench. So time was of the essence, and not too much poetry is in there. The sacrum (from sacred) is so named in honor of the “Holy Trinity” because of its triangular shape. The vagus nerve is named “the wanderer” (vagus, as in vagrant, vagabond) because it is the longest one, and seems to wander throughout the body.
My favorite is 17 syllables of pure, unbridled imagination, the longest-named muscle of the body–the “Elvis” muscle: levator labii superioris alaeque nasi (“elevator of the upper lip and wing of the nose”).
