The term "theobromine", incidentally, comes from Greek, "drink of the Gods", and

"Theophylline", however, does not mean "friend of the gods," as one might naively guess from the above. In fact, the "theo" in the latter compound is derived from "tea" while the same portion of "theobromine" is derived from the word "deo" or "theo" for a deity . . .
