Russian name: Аркашин

The name may mean "Arkasha's", where 'Arkasha' is a Russian male first name derived from 'Arkady'. Alternatively, "Arkashin" could be a last name of the breeder or the gardener the seeds were originally collected from. No historical information is available, and we can only speculate where the name came from.
